MEXICOONE PLATE AT A TIME WITH RICK BAYLESS
Episode 12: Todos Santos Magic
Maybe it’s the water, maybe it’s the desert, but there’s definitely magic in the charming Baja town called Todos Santos. It all starts at Art & Beer, a funky roadside bar on the outskirts of town that serves generous cocktails and outstanding appetizers. Then Rick checks into the Hotel California before meeting up with his local buddy, Sergio Jaurequi, for a history lesson about the town’s disappearing and reappearing water supply. Together they taste the local sweets and get a lesson from local cook Doña Ramona, in transforming dried beef and cactus into delectable dishes. Chef Dany Lamote’s vanilla-infused margarita proves magical, too.
