    Rick Bayless in his introduction pp 17-27 talks about his philosphy on
    eating and health, weight control and attitudes toward eating. He addresses
    the fact that most people think that chefs will be a little over weight and
    why he is not. Even though he does give a recipe for a mole in this book,
    he says on p. 26, "I've steered clear of moles (they're rich and complex and
    typically served only for special occasions in Mexico) except for the simple
    yelllow and green ones."

    I am impressed with the picture p. 25 showing him in a shoulder stand (I see
    in his bio that he was born in 1953. ) I assume it is a current picture. He
    is an inspiration.

    He's very scary. I used to watch his show occaisonally, but found him
    so intense it was disturbing. Distracted me from the sometimes
    interesting dishes. I think the reason he's not overweight is because
    he just burns energy like a maniac! :)
