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!
