State Dinner Deets - Olé, it's Time for Mole

While Washington waits for the State Dinner hosting the President and First Lady of Mexico, the special guest chef who is preparing the dinner with the chief White House chef is tweeting a few behind the scene details about the hush-hush menu.

Rick Bayless, of the very well-known and liked Frontera Grill in Chicago and the winner of Season One of Bravo's "Top Chef Masters" is the special invited chef for tonight's State Dinner and he's told a few people about some details for the big dinner.

Bayless told NPR the other day about a mole he will prepare with "27 to 28 ingredients".  Mole is a Mexican sauce that can be made in a variety of ways including a red mole and a chocolate mole. He also tweeted (Bayless goes by Rick_Bayless on Twitter) about a recipe for green ceviche he was planning to make at the White House.

Stay tuned to this space for all updates on the State Dinner including the menu.
