When do you go to Frontera to eat something that isn’t Mexican food? When it’s the Frontera Farmer Foundation Festival and Rick Bayless is cooking up recipes from other star chefs like Eric Ripert and Charlie Trotter. Bayless started the Frontera Farmer Foundation to provide support for small farmers and organic farming, and the event Saturday was a spectacular tribute to that mission, beginning with a farmers market inside Frontera and Topolobampo and concluding with a lavish meal in which Bayless & crew cooked recipes from the James Beard Foundation’s 25th anniversary cookbook. Our man Huge Galdones was on the scene the whole day; here’s his pictorial report.
