This book is more than a cookbook, it's a book about the people and food of Baja. I enjoyed reading about the chefs and the people from Baja and the food they cook. Sadly, I haven't been to Baja. I've driven down California as far as San Diego. This cookbook transported me there as I read through and looked at the recipes, stories, and the pictures. Many of the recipes are simple but provides delicious meals, and there are some recipes with unique ingredients that I haven't tried such as rabbit ...more

This Cookbook is absolutely gorgeous! The photos really draw you in and make you want to create whatever the food is pictured on the pages of the cookbook.

The recipes are delicious and simple to create. Each recipe we tried was absolutely fantastic! I am not much of a chef and I was able to create several of the recipes in this book.

If you are looking for authentic cuisine look no further than the Baja California Cookbook.

The Baja California Cookbook is the ideal choice for foodies during social distancing. I feel very lucky to have received it from Ten Speed Press in exchange for a free and unbiased review.

Lush with photos of the region. Its people and Chef Hussong's food, the book instantly transported me to Baja. Spending an evening with this mixture of travelogue, memoir and highly detailed recipes was a mini-vacation in Mexico. I can't wait to open the pages again.

This book is gorgeous. Beautiful food, pictures, recipes, and stories, all wrapped up in this gorgeous book. I very much enjoyed how approachable the food is, and how they describe a cuisine and culture that may be unfamiliar to much of the country. I live in So Cal, so it’s as much a part of our local Mexican food as In N Out is to burgers here.

The recipes are very simple and uncomplicated. Great food, truly great food, need only have a handful of high quality ingredients in order to be perfec

What a great book! Baja is one of the most special places in Mexico—unparalleled seafood, rustic wood-fired cooking, venerated wine country with world-class chefs. Having grown up there in a family of fishermen and ranchers, David shares an intimate awareness of all that makes Baja extraordinary. As one of the region’s leading chefs, he reflects why Baja is becoming a favorite travel destination.
