The Gourmet Club Goes Baja

We've got great flavors to talk about this week on The Gourmet Club. Chef/owner Javier Plascencia of Romesco in Bonita will be with Robert Whitley and me in studio to talk about Baja Mediterranean-style cooking, which you'll find not only at Romesco, but at one of the family's other restaurants in Tijuana, Villa Saverios.

Maureen Clancy will be calling in from New York, where she attended this year's James Beard Foundation Awards at Lincoln Center. Apparently, Kim Cattrall and Bobby Flay got down and dirty with their hosting duties. And, a former San Diego chef, Gavin Kaysen, now of Cafe Boulud in New York, won the rising star award. Maureen will tell all!

And, we'll have Mike Mitchell from Oceanaire on to talk about the new places he's been trying out. We'll also ask him how the restaurants in town are doing sans tomatoes.

It's going to be a busy meeting of The Gourmet Club. Join Robert Whitley and me for our regular Wednesday morning gathering on signonradio.com from 11 a.m. to noon Pacific. You can also podcast the show and listen at your convenience.
