Thanks for Supporting the Baja Bash!
An evening of Baja California and San Diego's best flavors, to benefit our shared coastline.
WILDCOAST Celebrated the Best of Baja at the
2nd Annual Baja Bash!
On June 15, 2013, WILDCOAST hosted the 2nd Annual Baja Bash! This fundraising event brought the best food, beer, and wine from both San Diego and Baja California, and highlight WILDCOAST’s conservational successes on both sides of our shared coastline.
This year we honored lucha libre icon El Hijo del Santo as a defender of the ocean and marine life, as well as chef Javier Plascencia, for leading Baja’s gastronomic revolution, with a sustainable message. San Diego's own and nationally recognized B-Side Players served as our featured musical guests.
The Baja Bash also featured 8 top regional chefs from both sides of the border, including: (from San Diego) Flor Franco of Indulge Catering, Jason Knibb of NINE-TEN, Todd Nash from Blind Burro, Chad White of Plancha Baja Med, and (from Baja California), Humberto Aviles of La Caza Club, Drew Deckman of Deckman’s San Jose, Miguel-Angel Guerrero of La Querencia, and Javier Plascencia of Mision 19.
Chef Marcela Valladolid served as our host for the evening, and featured her tequila line, Hacienda de la Flor Tequila. We will also served beer donated by Stone Brewing Company, Green Flash Brewing Company and Cucapá, as well as a selection of regional wines, and the support of the Tijuana Culinary Art School.
