One more tidibt that didn't make it into today's follow-up on "Top Chef Masters" champion Rick Bayless:
You might have caught a glimpse of a fading Chicago Bulls emblem on the outside of Bayless' jumbo molcajete, the Mexican bowl used for grinding spices and making guacamole.
So what's the story with that?
"Back when the Bulls were the leading team in the NBA, they were so popular among Mexican-Americans here in Chicago," Bayless said. "And one of the grocery stores here [Jimenez Foods and Carniceria] commissioned someone in Mexico to do a special molcajete with the Bulls logo. It's my favorite thing. I've had it forever."
