Over 20-years of baja experience


Husband and wife team, Chris and Jen, run Baja Test Kitchen. Curating and sharing Baja's burgeoning food, wine, and craft beer movement is our passion. Jen is the author of the Moon Baja Handbook (considered "the bible" of Baja California travel guides), and began her explorations of Baja as a little girl with her parents Hugh and Carol, in the 1980s (Jen's parent's founded our sister company, Discover Baja Travel Club, over 28-years ago). Chris's discovery of Baja started on a summer road-trip in an old VW camper with his parents, Terri and Bob, in the mid 1980s. On those first trips, we both caught "the Baja bug" and we haven't been able to (or wanted to) shake it since. Over the years we have explored just about every town, village, surf break, and fishing camp on the Baja Peninsula. In 2013, we launched Baja Test Kitchen and began offering "tasting tours" to Mexico's Valle de Guadalupe Wine Region, Ensenada, and Tijuana.

Our love for Baja runs deep... so much so that we chose to exchange our wedding vows in the heart of the Valle de Guadalupe, and call Baja home! We invite you to ride along with us, as we share with you our love for this magical place: its mouthwatering food, its world-class wine, its artisan beers, its breathtaking vistas, and its kindhearted people. Come Baja with us!
