Death For Food, the roving photography project of Jaime Fritsch, is making its way to Valle de Guadalupe on July 13th for an open-air exhibition and feast. The program invites creative and culinary leaders from both sides of the border to gather in Baja's wine country to converse about fully connected eating, including an (optional) animal harvest workshop on-site. Famed chef Javier Plascencia will host at his ranch restaurant Finca Altozano (below), serving a bounteous six course meal of valle-raised pig, goat, quail, and lamb, paired with local wines and a special beer release by Monkey Paw.
The exhibition features Fritsch's recent photographic work from Valle de Guadalupe (shown here), giving guests a glimpse into the personalities and establishments that make up the valle's landscape. Food writer Troy Johnson (San Diego Magazine) and Baja connoisseurs Life & Food will lead conversations in an art-filled setting designed by Tijuana architect Manuel Martinez.
As collaborators on this exhibition, we at Set & Drift are counting the days to July 13th. We hope you will join us in the festivities and this experience of the valle. Tickets include round trip transportation to and from the San Diego-Mexico border and are limited to 50, so reserve them now!
