We are raffling off 2 passes to the Friday night event for one lucky reader!

On Friday, September 29, while poolside overlooking the downtown San Diego skyline, guests will indulge in an array of delectable small plates crafted by the Culinary Art School of Tijuana. The event will serve as the official debut for these students. While sipping on a variety of Baja wines and beers, live music from jazz chantress Lorraine Castellanos will provide the perfect ambiance for a summer-end celebration. The event will take place from 5:30-8:30pm and the cost is $40 per person.

"This is an incredible opportunity to show the collaboration between what is becoming an almost borderless culinary region," said Chef Claudia Sandoval. "It is an honor to work alongside Chef Javier Plascencia and to mentor the students of the Culinary Art School."

The celebration continues on Saturday, September 30, with a celebrity chef dinner. Set in The Westgate Hotel’s enchanting Versailles Ballroom, guests will feast on a four-course prix fixe menu specially crafted by celebrity chefs Claudia Sandoval, winner of Fox's MasterChef season 6, and Javier Plascencia, a culinary ambassador of Baja California. Each chef will construct two courses using sustainably sourced ingredients. Enhanced with wine pairings and live music, the night is sure to create special memories. The event begins at 7pm and the cost is $130 per person.
