Tomorrow marks the last day of the second annual Baja California Culinary Fest, sharing the region’s food and wine traditions and new wave of gastronomic techniques with visitors through interactive experiences.

Participants have been celebrating the region’s artisan fare and premium wines in cities throughout Northern Baja between Oct. 11-14. Featuring special dinners, interactive events, cooking classes, competitions and entertainment, the region’s bountiful ingredients will take center stage with special guest stars from Sinaloa and California.

Headlining this year’s festival is an exclusive six-course guest chef meal merging the flavors of Baja and Sinaloa, a state also famous for its fresh seafood. Chefs Luis Osuna, Marino Maganda and Julian Portugal of Sinaloa, as well as Chef Bernard Guillas of La Jolla, Calif., will cook alongside Baja gastronomic celebrities Javier Plascencia, Miguel Angel Guerrero and Benito Molina, pioneers of the Baja Med movement. Baja Med infuses the region’s Mediterranean-like ingredients and Asian influences into traditional Mexican fare, and has been praised by American food personalities including Anthony Bourdain, Rick Bayless and Andrew Zimmern.

The amazing festival has also incorporated nearly 70 boutique and large production wineries, as well as the numerous craft breweries hailing from this region of Mexico.
