Baja California a mexican culinary adventure
Baja California is extreme. It is a strip of desert and cactus over a thousand miles long, with the Pacific on one side and the Sea of Cortez on the other. Swept by strong winds, battered by giant waves, seared by the blistering summers and surrounded by a sea rich in fish, it is unique.
This gastronomic and photographic adventure enables us to explore Baja California and its cuisine, a synthesis of traditional Mexican cooking and powerful influences coming from the American southwest. For those who love pungent dishes, with chili packing a powerful punch, there is no place in the world better than Mexico. Burritos, huevos rancheros, guacamole and tacos are dishes that everyone craves, and revisited in a southern Californian key they become the cornerstones of a frontier region often neglected and for this very reason all the more authentic.
