As I grew, the passionate way my family communicated (translation: yelling) proved to be too much for me. I was deemed “sensitive” or “delicate” because the noise of their boisterous conversations and debates would leave me jittery and nervous. I noticed, though, that none of that drama crossed the threshold to the kitchen.

  • 677113Baja Wendy I am an expat Designer and Journalist living in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, and have recently written a couple of stories and conducted radio interviews with some of the Baja winemakers. There have been two Wine and Food Festivals in the past couple of weeks...one in the Cabo area and the other in Todos Santos...spotlighting the wines of Baja, with wonderful food pairing dinners the night before. Besides all the artists who live here, we are also known for our chefs here in Todos Santos. I think your readers would find the history of Baja's winemaking area and what the vineyards are producing, very interesting. Wendy Rains, wendy@buildinginbaja.com
