Prolific Windy City chef and restaurateur Rick Bayless has launched a YouTube channel that offers a double dose of good stuff.
Viewers can enjoy watching new recipe videos twice a week while also supporting workers who have been affected by pandemic restrictions.
“That's right,” said Bayless, “proceeds from your membership are headed to our restaurant staff.”
Live with Rick! Provides access to live cooking sessions hosted in Bayless’ home kitchen, video chats with Bayless, and two “all-new weekly recipe videos” for $9.99 per month.
The weekly recipe videos include: Kitchen Adventures, “to step you through some of the classic and contemporary recipes in the Mexican kitchen,” and Essential Salsas and Quick Bites, “to take you way beyond chips and salsa.”
Kitchen Club provides access to the twice-weekly cooking video recipes for $4.99 per month.
“No matter what level you choose, I'll be dropping something a little extra for you every week, things like tours of my garden, lessons in knife sharpening, tips for entertaining and so much more,” said Bayless. “I might even show you some of my favorite yoga moves.”
He added, “I can't wait to show you what I've been working on!
Bayless has become a culinary legend and treasured personality since opening his first Chicago restaurant, Frontera Grill, in 1987. Since then, he has added Topolabamba to his list of establishments and also helped found Chefs Collaborative, an organization that supports environmentally sound agricultural practices.
“This is my way of supporting our employees at this crazy time,” he said. “We really hope you'll join us on this ride.”
