Would you like to get up close and personal with celebrity chef Rick Bayless? If you've got about $4,000 to spare, it's done deal.
You can purchase your intimate weekend with Bayless through Goviva, a website dedicated to once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences. The travel package ranges from $4,075 for one person to $3,250 for four guests. For that price, you'll get a welcome hand-shaken margarita and a four-course tasting menu at Topolobampo served by the chef himself.
The package also includes a recipe demo and tour of Bayless' test kichen and two nights at Fairmont Chicago. The following day includes a special tour of the chef's garden and a private VIP dinner cooked in his backyard. As if that wasn't enough, other perks include a personalized chef's coat, a signed cookbook, sauces and other products baring the Rick Bayless label.
If you'd prefer an intimate dinner with Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud, Jerome Bocuse and Richard Rosendale, you can have that too. But you'd have to dish out $250,000.
