Rick Bayless, celebrity chef, says only a well-stocked bar will have sal de gusano. He should know. Rick is a Michelin star American chef, author and restaurant owner (Chicago’s Frontera, for one) who specializes in traditional Mexican cuisine with modern interpretations. He is widely known for his PBS series Mexico: One Plate at a Time.
