Finding Freshness with Master Chef Erick Saenz at the Rosarito Beach Hotel

Finding Freshness with Master Chef Erick Saenz at the Rosarito Beach Hotel

The Rosarito Beach Hotel is a landmark in Baja California, conjuring up nostalgic images of yesteryear’s suntanned Hollywood celebrities, colorful posadas and fiestas, and authentic margaritas by the sparkling rectangular swimming pool perched above the Pacific Ocean.  For years, Chabert’s was the hotel’s famed dining spot that emphasized French cuisine.  But along with an exciting make-over for this iconic hostelry has come something else fresh and attractive:  the inviting Casa Blanca restaurant, under the seasoned guidance of Master Chef Erick Saenz.

The Rosarito Beach Hotel’s Casa Blanca is strategically positioned right between that famous swimming pool and the even more famous Rosarito Beach, giving it wonderful views on either side.  It opened in 2012, with much attention paid to the simple and elegant interior design created by Bo Bendana Sein.  Her work set the stage for a complete transition in menu style for the hotel, reflecting the culinary changes that are reshaping people’s perceptions of the region.

As Master Chef Erick puts it, “Baja Fusion-BajaMed cuisine offers a way to showcase traditional products of the region with new techniques.”

And showcase, he does.  The menu highlights regional ingredients that Master Chef Erick and his right-hand man, Chef Heriberto Astango, select at local markets like Mercado Hidalgo in Tijuana and Mercado de Abastos in Rosarito.  There are lots of popular staples on the menu, including the Hibiscus Flower (Jamaica) Flautas: a seasoned hibiscus flower with goat cheese that is wrapped in flour tortilla and deep fried, to be served in an orange Habanero sauce.  The Ceviche Margarita isn’t a margarita at all, but rather marinated tilapia fish, with tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lemon juice and a touch of Tequila.  Main courses offer everything from classic Surf and Turf (featuring the region’s best lobster or marinated shrimp accompanied by a Peruvian potato cake), to mouth-watering tenderloin filet, to scallops in a Tequila cream sauce, to Sesame Tuna and Beef Burritos with mole sauce.

The menu is broad, but Master Chef Erick points out that he believes in flexibility.  “Here, you can have exactly what you want,” he notes.  “If our customers want a special dish, we will do everything we can to create it!”

Flexibility — the goal of constantly evolving his craft — has been key to Chef Erick’s successful (and still early) career. Originally from San Diego and with a degree from the California Culinary Academy, he has plied his culinary skills in a number of US cities prior to arriving in Baja.  He is a Master Chef – the highest designation possible in American culinary arts.  He won the Taste of Excellence Chef Award in the 2007-2008 Battle of the Masters 5-Star Award at the American Culinary Association.  Additionally, he has been involved with a number of five-star Italian restaurants in California and with outstanding establishments in other states, including La Olla Restaurant and Bar in Chattanooga and chef/partner in Patrón Grill in Cleveland.

With his own show and multiple television appearances under his belt,  Master Chef Erick Saenz is a celebrity chef.

A celebrity chef for Bravo TV, Chef Erick has made numerous television appearances including the Wines du Jour program hosted by Les Kincaid, that was produced live at the Rosarito Beach Hotel and on Good Morning America. In upcoming episodes of Top Chef, he will serve as one of the judges. And, if having a full-time job as Executive Chef and showing up on the little screen periodically are not enough, Chef Erick also currently has his own show on ProChef TV, Channel 154, on Tuesdays and Thursday at 1 p.m.

That said, with his staff of six cooks, four sous chefs, and approximately 14 apprentices, Master Chef Erick and Chef Heriberto have no difficulty creating menus that deliciously represent the rich bounty of Baja foods in palate-pleasing ways.

“I have always been around chefs and great cooks and cooking instructors,” comments Master Chef Erick.  “Now, at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, this is my first time cooking in Mexico.  It is great to incorporate my Italian and French culinary techniques with Baja’s traditions and products – it is truly Baja Fusion at its best!”

The Casa Blanca restaurant at the Rosarito Beach Hotel is open Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m. – midnight, Saturday from 9 a.m.-noon,  and Sunday from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. for brunch. Phone for reservations, (661) 612-1126.

Too Much Fun! The 6-hour El Coronel Hiking Experience in Rosarito

Too Much Fun is exactly what you’ll have on the 6-hour El Coronel Hiking Experience

by Carla White

So, what’s so grape — whoops, great — about a 6-hour hike up a mini-mountain in Rosarito?  That’s for you to find out.  But be aware that the same people who bring you the Baja Grape Adventure, an ATV-amble through Ensenada’s hills and wine country, bring you the El Coronel Hiking Experience.  It’s happening on Saturday, April 6, at 9 a.m. sharp, with the intrepid hikers gathering in front of the Grand Baja Resort in Puerto Nuevo (the famous lobster village).

Ready, set, go...to have Too Much Fun!

Ready, set, go…to have Too Much Fun!

 

Too Much Fun Promotions, under the leadership of the ever-enthusiastic Armando Carrasco, puts together jaunts of all sorts and to please all different ages, tastes and physical abilities (heck, even I could do this hike!).  In this case, although the 6-hour hike uphill and back sounds daunting, there is the opportunity to turn back at any point, and there is a follow-car to make the return even easier.  Okay, so enough about the loopholes…now, why would you want to go on this Too Much Fun hike??

 

The El Coronel Hiking Experience offers unique perspectives on northerm Baja and its environs.

Most people who come to Rosarito visit because of the region’s white sand beaches, or to explore the city’s myriad curio shops and stalls, or to eat some of Baja’s most famous tacos.  Few actually get off the beaten path to see Rosarito from a different perspective — from the top of a mountain, in fact!  It’s a great way to experience Rosarito’s flora and meet some of Baja’s best bovines.

But El Coronel is more than just a mountain:  It is a place rich in legend and history…and, some even say, ghosts.  As lore would have it, around 1800, a colonel in the US army defected and fled to Baja with a large shipment of gold.  He took refuge in a cave in the El Coronel area and there the gold remains hidden to this day.  From time to time, adventurers still conduct forays into the hills to try and discover the cache of golden ore.  The El Coronel Hiking Experience doesn’t encourage too much off-path exploration, but rather aims deliver its group to the summit of the peak where vistas of Coronado Island and the Pacific Ocean spread out before hikers in a vast panorama.

The hike includes waters and snacks and, even better, a chance to meet Armando Carrasco. His ebullient personality will surely convince you that not only is the 6-hour hike a brilliant idea, but that you should be going through your trunk to find those cool 1984 leather jeans in preparation for your victory ride on an ATV at the next Baja Grape Adventure.  Anyway, that’s how I am getting ready for it.  There are prices for tours and hikes, alone, or packages that include hotel rooms.  Find out more about the April 6 El Coronel Hiking Experience at www.toomuchfun.com.mx/ or visit Too Much Fun Promotions on Facebook.

Want to explore Rosarito?  There are many hotels and vacation rentals in the Rosarito area.

Rosarito is just 30 minutes south of the border…maybe it’s time to go there on a taste tour and a hike!

Les Kincaid’s Wines du Jour Live Radio Broadcast Showcases Baja’s Gastronomy

Les Kincaid’s Wines du Jour Live Radio Broadcast Showcases Baja’s Gastronomy

by Carla White

Les Kincaid’s Wines du Jour will focus on Baja’s Gastronomy

Les Kincaid is his name and gastronomy is his game…as it has been since he started his professional cooking career at the age of 14.  Admittedly, his first job in the culinary industry was less than glamorous — he made burgers for Winn’s Drive Inn, south of San Francisco.  And it took him a couple of weeks to get the hang of it.  However, from this modest beginning, Les Kincaid has become a renowned gastronomist and today authors, teaches, and hosts a syndicated radio program called Wines du Jour that is carried on more than 450 radio stations, every cable company in the United States, and listened to throughout the world.  On Thursday, March 28, he will broadcast live from the Rosarito Beach Hotel in Rosarito, Baja California, from 7-8 p.m.  The public is invited to purchase tickets for the program and be part of the tasting event.

According to Les, his goals are to try and get everyone to expand his or her recipe repertoire, and to promote good wine and good food wherever and whenever he finds it.  He has definitely found it in Baja California, which is why he decided to host the radio show along with a food and wine pairing.  Typically, on the Wines du Jour program, an upscale restaurant is selected as the program venue and then a specific winery is invited to pair its wines with three of the restaurant’s featured menu items.  For his upcoming show at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, he will be focusing on the renowned wines of the Valle de Guadalupe’s Adobe Guadalupe Vineyards & Inn and the cuisine of the hotel’s Master Chef Eric Saenz.  Adobe Guadalupe’s wines from Baja’s wine country will accompany five dishes including seafood, beef, chicken and pork.

Les and Tammy Kincaid

Les has lived in Las Vegas, Nevada, since 1978 and  firmly believes that it is the best city in the United States in which to reside; he is, however,  also growing fond of Baja California, and notes that he was pretty surprised to learn that the region now boasts upwards of 80 wineries.

“The concept of ‘culinary’ has expanded,” he says in regard to the Baja region.  “I am so impressed with Hugo Torres, the Secretary of Tourism Juan Tintos, Jean Loup Bitterlin (El Rey Sol restaurant) and all of the people who are bringing awareness to this area!”  Maybe it’s just the Las Vegas connection talking…but it is almost a sure bet that Wines du Jour and Les Kincaid will help bring even more attention to this booming culinary region and to Baja’s gastronomy.

 

How to attend Les Kincaid’s Wines du Jour broadcast and tastings:  Cost for the five wine tastings and five food pairings is $15 per person. Seating is limited so early reservations are suggested. For reservations please contact Patricia Orozco at salesmanager@rosaritobeachhotel.com  or 1-866 ROSARITO (from the U.S.) or 661-612 -1126.

How to find out more about Les Kincaid:  Visit Les Kincaid’s website, https://leskincaid.com/

This is just a taste of spring events and Baja’s Gastronomy at the Rosarito Beach Hotel & Resort. Plus, those who want to turn an event into a mini-vacation can reserve oceanfront rooms from $79 per night on weekends.

Off the Beaten Track: A Life-Changing Experience for Horses and Tourists

Off the Beaten Track:  Pretty Horses Rescue creates  Life-Changing Experiences for Horses and People

By Carla White

Some might call this a Pony Tale, but it is a story of good works, happy outcomes and Baja travelers who see Mexico in a way they never thought possible. It about Pretty Horses of Baja Rescue (and how everyday travelers can support the cause by visiting, riding and playing with the ponies — not to mention wine tasting, eating BBQ and more).

 

Here is a happy horse who now lives off the beaten track thanks to All the Pretty Horses of Baja Rescue

The main highway from north to south through Baja parallels the coastline, running through Playas, Rosarito, Puerto Nuevo, Cantamar, and southward. At many points along this route, visitors can stop off at restaurants and bars for some tacos and beer, or drive down a road to find a snatch of beach, or pop into an abarrotes (mini-mart) store for a soda. They then can continue on their merry way to Ensenada or other fun destinations. But there is a lucky few who, by word of mouth or cosmic fortune, find a spot off the beaten track to the east of the highway near PrimoTapia (around kilometer 46), up in the lomas near Rancho Macias, where Pretty Horses Rescue has worked its magic: Here, horses clamber on scrubby open hillsides framed by the vast vistas of Pacific Ocean and overlooking a strangely verdant area known as Descanso. The visitors who discover this equine sanctuary are changed forever and leave having had a fascinating, off-the-beaten-track kind of experience that will be a lasting memory.

 

Pretty Horses Rescue in Baja brings the equines in, off the beaten track.

But how did it start? What inspired someone like Krystal Redmon to dream up this horse-bitten concept? Well, it began about five years ago, with a horse named “Miss Bones,” and a happen-chance visit to a ramshackle horse rental operation, where Krystal spotted the sad looking mare – and her sad-looking baby, “Rocket.” A number of visits later, a payment to the owners and some tender moments spent walking on the dunes near Primo Tapia finally resulted in Miss Bones being brought with her foal to her new home with Krystal. Suffice it to say, things soon were going better for Miss Bones and for a number of other animals in varying states of sorry repair. The rescue had gone from an adoption to an operation…and continues. But Krystal’s mission is to not let people forget to help. Just because there is a place for needy equines doesn’t mean there is money and support to pay for it. Horses keep coming, all the time. Some in better shape than others.

 

Pretty Horses Rescue raises money through hillside rides, barbecues, wine tastings and more to save the horses and bring them new life.

 

Thanks to Pretty Horses Rescue, Miss Bones is living her life and meeting children, families and Baja travelers who want to explore the off-the-beaten track areas of Baja Norte and who relish the idea of being able to share the special moments of nature and vistas with these gentle horses who seem to know that they are loved and cared for.
(One recent visitor there, Ruth Rockwell who lives in Bajamar, noted, “This group takes the horses out of Rancho Macias. I went on a ride, and it was INCREDIBLE. So many horses and cows and wildlife running free. We stopped at 3 places for wine and cheese. Then had a barbecue at Rancho Macias!”)

 

Pretty Horses Rescue is having a holiday event to help raise funds to support the cause. According to Krystal, there will be a lot of horsing around and some great fun. The event will take place in El Pescador (north of Puerto Nuevo), and will feature music by ‘The Lonesome Cowboys’, Texas Barbecue, auctions, a meeting with Miss Bones herself, and there will be the satisfaction of knowing that 100% of all proceeds will benefit Pretty Horses Rescue.

What is the Event: All the Pretty Horses of Baja Rescue for cowgirls and cowboys who care!
Where: At El Pescador, kilometer 44
When: Saturday, Dec. 8, 2013, 1 p.m.
What to Expect: Texas BBQ, a kissing booth, and some fun!
How to Dress: Cowboy casual.

‘Shine On Baja’ Lights Up Baja’s Pacific Coast from Tijuana to Ensenada

by Carla White

Wish lanterns will illuminate Baja’s northwest coast during ‘Shine On Baja’

On Nov. 3, 2012, the sun will set at 5:49 p.m.  Assuming fair weather,  the western sky will transition from fiery orange and fuschia hues to the deepest purple-black of night.  This is the time when the northwestern coastline of Baja California is peaceful, illuminated every few miles by light clusters that represent cities, towns and fishing villages.  But on this special Saturday night — a changeable climate notwithstanding — there will be something different happening.  At exactly 7 p.m., hundreds and even thousands of beautiful multi-colored ‘wish lanterns’ will be released into the atmosphere as ‘Shine On Baja’ lights up Baja’s Pacific Coast.

‘Shine On Baja’ is a nonprofit community art project and the brainchild of artist interior designer Debbie Shine, along with producer Robin MacKenzie.  Both have a profound fondness for Baja and thought that there would be no better way to express this than through what they refer to as a ‘mob art’ event — the largest and possibly most unique in Baja’s history.  Like many Americans who live or travel to this part of Mexico, the women feel that the region has been somewhat beaten up in recent years by negative media attention and misconceptions about Baja.  ‘Shine On Baja’ is their real and symbolic way of sending a message of beauty and hope about the region’s present and future.

As simple as the idea sounds, though, staging an event of this scope is an entirely different matter!  Shine and MacKenzie have managed to bring awareness of the project to Baja residents from Tijuana to Ensenada, and so far hundreds have gone to a website to purchase wish lanterns — four-foot-tall biodegradeable units that will stay alight for about 12 minutes — have been acquired for $2-$4 in preparation for the release.  Debbie Shine notes that there is even a discount available on the lanterns (coupon code Baja2012).  Although individuals and communities can elect to have their own release parties, it is anticipated that many will opt to join launch parties at ‘safe zones’ and restaurants and hotels up and down the coast in the hope that the result will be a jewel-like effect for more than 35 miles.

Among the venues that will host launch parties are Splash!, the Lighthouse, Rosarito Beach Hotel, La Salina Cantina, Javi’s Paradise, Plan B (km. 22), Castillos del Mar, Las Olas Grand & Las Cristales Restaurant, and Puerto Nuevo #2.  A number of communities will host group parties, including Club Marena, Las Palmas, San Antonio del Mar, Campo Lopez, Calafia, La Jolla, Popotla and Las Ventanas. Shine notes that the list of venues is growing rapidly and encourages potential ‘launchers’ to visit the ‘Shine On Baja’ facebook page frequently. For more information, contact event organizers Debbie Shine, debbieshinebaja@yahoo.com or Robin MacKenzie, tatblue@aol.com.

Splash! Restaurant in Baja: A Story of Hard Work and Success In Baja

By Steve Kassanyi

This little story is more than an article about Splash! Restaurant in Baja; it is a story of hard work and success by the Brothers Santos, Nicolas and Agapo, who left their home town of La Cruz in the state of Chihuahua on mainland Mexico in 1996.

Nicolas Santos, Rosarito’s most popular restaurateur, Splash! Restauran in Baja

Nicolas came to Baja to Playas de Rosarito and began his career as a dishwasher at the Palmira Restaurant in Cantamar, learning to master the English language. He was soon promoted to bartender there, and progressed in his profession at Raul`s Restaurant, then El Pescador, and finally at Bahia Cantiles.

It is honest to say that Nicolas developed an incredible following, becoming one of the most popular bartenders on Baja`s Gold Coast.  He has also taken an active role in the community and offers support to many, including the Baja Scholarship Foundation.

Agapo had worked as chef at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, Las Rocas Hotel & Spa, the Calafia Resort Hotel, La Mision Hotel, and a couple of USA restaurants, the Restaurant Depot in Colorado and the Rodeo Grill in Los Angeles.  He has honed his talents over the years, and is known for some of the best Seafood dishes — like grilled black sea bass — around.

Nicolas and Agapo bought the local hang-out Bahia Cantiles in 2009, and sold it the same year. The two brothers had saved their hard-earned money and after selling Bahia Cantiles, they opened the Splash! Restaurant in Baja at KM 52 on the free road between Rosarito and Ensenada. Their location surprised some people, as it’s in a small fishing village on the coast, off the so-called ‘beaten path.’ The Restaurant is built on the bluff of lava rock outcroppings, with the surf pounding the rocks and splashing incredible amounts of the Ocean right at the windows.

What a beautiful view, even better at sunset! One can look out the large windows and see dolphins frolicking in the surf.

Splash! Restaurant in Baja has been open for a while now, and although they started as a Seafood house (shrimp and fish Tacos and burritos each for only $1.25, and an amazing Seven Seas Soup), they have since expanded their new menu to include great steaks, chicken dishes, burgers, and of course great Mexican Food. They also serve breakfast, and feature a southern recipe — sausage gravy served over chicken-fried steak. Best gravy in all of Baja!

Splash! Restaurant at Rosarito takes full advantage of its spectacular view with a large horseshoe-shaped bar, with large flat-screen TV`s everywhere for those who want to view a variety of sporting events. There are heaters for the colder months, and with the windows open during warmer days you`ll enjoy the cool Ocean breezes throughout the bar. There’s a tropical outdoor palapa area, and Splash! also features daily live entertainment for great listening or dancing.

Their location is easy to find, just take the first driveway south of the large CRREAD facility at KM 52, at the southbound Cuenca Lechera off-ramp of Highway 1.   Splash! Restaurant in Baja is a great experience for dining and sharing cocktails with friends, giving a true meaning to the words “Ambiente Familiar”. Great place, great food, great fun.

And a great story about how hard work, a little ingenuity and a lot of soul resulted in one of northern Baja’s busiest, most fun and popular Restaurant success stories.

Splash2 recently opened in Rosarito Beach!  Check it out and let Baja.com know if the shrimp tacos are just as good!
