The Mexican government has named Rick Bayless to the Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest distinction awarded to foreigners by the Mexican government.

According to the official announcement (and Google Translate), the Topolobampo and Frontera Grill chef was honored "for his important work in the promotion and dissemination of cultural expressions of our country internationally recognized, as is the national cuisine in general and Mexican cuisine in particular." Congrats Rick!
