Bayless Knows Mexican Food… and Wine

Perhaps the most amazing thing about Topolobampo, the Michelin-starred Mexican restaurant in Chicago owned by Rick Bayless, is its wine list.

Mexican food has never been easy to pair with wine, but Bayless has developed a list that works beautifully with his menu.

Chicago magazine recently asked Bayless to name the most versatile ingredient in Mexican cooking.
