When chef Rick Bayless has a barbecue, he goes whole hog. Or rather, whole goat.

Actually, he roasted at least eight baby goats in the backyard of his Bucktown home on Sunday during a visit by Mexican chef Juan Ramón Cárdenas Cantu, according to pictures he posted to social media. Cantu is the "maestro of cabritos [baby goats]," Bayless said in one post, calling it an "honor" to be cooking the goats with Cantu. Cantu is also roasting goats at an afterparty tonight following the James Beard Awards. The party is at Leña Brava, Bayless's spot on Randolph Row.

Sunday's dinner raised $30,000 for the Frontera Farmer Foundation, which promotes small, sustainable farms serving the Chicago area. The foundation last month awarded $297,000 in grants to 26 farms in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.
