The Westgate Hotel, in partnership with the Consulate General of Mexico in San Diego, will host a regional culinary experience benefitting the Mexico earthquake relief through Cruz Roja Mexicana. The two-night Borderless Dine & Wine event will take place on Friday, Sept. 29, and Saturday, Sept. 30.

On Friday, Sept. 29, while poolside overlooking the downtown San Diego skyline, guests will indulge in an array of delectable small plates crafted by the Culinary Art School of Tijuana, using Baja produce and meats provided by Sano y Punto for the event. The event will serve as the official debut for these students. While sipping on a variety of Baja wines and beers, live music from jazz chantress Lorraine Castellanos will provide the perfect ambiance for a summer-end celebration. The event will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and the cost is $40 per person.

The celebration continues on Saturday, Sept. 30, with a celebrity chef night. Set in The Westgate Hotel’s enchanting Versailles Ballroom, guests will feast on a four-course prix fixe menu specially crafted by celebrity chefs Claudia Sandoval, winner of “MasterChef,” and Javier Plascencia, a culinary ambassador of Baja, California. Each chef will construct two courses using sustainably sourced ingredients. Enhanced with wine pairing from Valle de Guadalupe and live music, the night is sure to create special memories. The event begins at 7 p.m. and the cost is $130 per person.

“This is an incredible opportunity to show the collaboration between what is becoming an almost borderless culinary region,” said Sandoval. “It is an honor to work alongside chef Javier Plascencia and to mentor the students of the Culinary Art School.”
