Chef Bayless, whole family is a big fan and love your show on public access televisions here in chicago. haven't had a chance to visit the restaurant but looking forward to an opportunity soon... one of the things I have noticed about latin cuisine and culture is that a lot of cooking, spicing, dishes, textures have a whole bunch of similarities with south-east asian cuisine (I am from India). I mean coming from back home, one of the foods that we most identify with - is latin food. in your culinary adventures and research, have you found any link between them (they seem like long lost siblings that have grown apart but held to a lot of similarities). also, based on your background, any fusion ideas that might have originated in your restaurants or recipes. Thanking you in advance.
