−La Plancha Pop-Up Dinner: Celebration of Baja & Tequila Tasting6:30 pm – 9:30 pm
A unique collaboration of Baja and San Diego chefs to include Chad White of Plancha Baja Med, Javier Plascencia of Mision 19 and Jason Knibb of Nine-Ten. Feast upon 6 uniquely styled courses with handpicked tequila pairings selected by Marcela Valladolid of Hacienda de la Flor and Food Network’s Mexican Made Easy. The Plancha Baja Med tagline is “It’s like a high 5 in the mouth” and with this line up of chefs, it promises to do just that.
The term plancha is Spanish for “iron” and is the type of griddle used in Mexican cooking, similar to a flat top grill. “Baja Med” refers to the culinary movement where Mexican, Mediterranean and Asian cuisine are fused together to create one mouthwatering flavor explosion. Chef Chad White began a journey of pop-up dinners in this style, where he is able to take creative liberty to cook what he wants, however he wants, wherever he wants. The sky is the limit. Now’s your chance to take part in the La Plancha experience.
Date: Monday, November 18, 2013
Time: 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm
Location: Romesco Baja Med Bistro
Attire: Sophisticated Casual
