Javier Plascencia, Mision 19, Tijuana, Baja, and Street Gourmet LA in the New Yorker on Newsstands Now
Check out Dana Goodyear's piece in the New Yorker on Javier Plascencia's Mision: to save Tijuana through cuisine. If you're not an online subscriber, you can still pick up a copy at newsstands in the Jan. 30th issue of the New Yorker.

Read about the life and times of one of Mexico's best chefs, and how I kept everybody loose and tipsy on the way down to Baja's first Culinary Fest.
