With more than 2,000 miles of beautiful coastline and the largest wine-producing region in Mexico, Baja California has developed a delectably distinct cuisine all its own: light, simple vibrantly fresh and full of the tastes of the sea and land.
¡Baja! Cooking on the Edge is chef Deborah Schneider's homage to this wildly beautiful region and its dazzlingly flavorful cuisine, and love letter to a place and a people that transformed her approach to food. In this extraordinary collection, you'll find exuberant salsas, ocean-fresh seafood dishes from the coast , nueva cocina recipes from the wine country, earthy fare from the bounty of the region's specialty farms and home gardens, and an intoxicating selection of exotic sweets and drinks. In true Baja style, freshness, flavor and ease of preparation are emphasized throughout.
