My "What I Did for Summer" Video. The Epicurean Epic of Epic Proportions (and Portions). Tijuana, Ensenada y Valle de Guadalupe, MEXICO.

A self-portrait of gluttony.

48 hours. 25 gluttons. 17 eateries. 2 wineries. 1 beer festival. It was exhilarating, maddening, exhausting, overindulgent, enlightening, joyous, grueling and, above all, delicious.

Bill Esparza, the master mind and ring leader of this tour de food of Baja, pushed us to our gourmand limits. This was no vacation but it certainly wasn't work either. All involved were immersed into a crash course of the cuisine of Baja (which I knew practically nothing about). After this culinary boot camp, I walk taller because I went, I saw, I ate, and now I know a bit more about the food from our neighbors to the south. Baja: what an appetizing and hospitable region it truly is.

This video is a teaser to other stories from this trip that I'll be blogging about in the coming weeks. It's pretty frenetic but I feel it captures my personal experience, at least, of this epicurean epic. Hope you enjoy it. Muchas gracias!

What an awesome video. I loved the epic music. I still can't believe how much we ate and drank in such a short amount of time, but I'd do it again in a heart beat.

What a great video. You captured the spirit spot on. In fact, it looks like such a blast that I'm jealous — and I was there! Can't wait for the sequel.

I'm speechless!!!!!!!!! This is mindblowing. You went to extremes -- off the deep end -- to include and credit all the partners in crime. Awesome!!
