I’m extremely pleased to announce our first visiting chef (and, as it happens, winemaker) at Salsipuedes. Our good friend, internationally acclaimed chef, and natural winemaker Jair Téllez will be joining Salsipuedes chef Marcus Krauss for a very fun night of food, drink, and celebration. Mark your calendar for Sunday, February 28th.

Jair is the chef/owner at three restaurants that you’ll generally see on any “best restaurants in Mexico” list: Laja in the Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico’s wine country, a restaurant sometimes referred to as “the French Laundry of Mexico”; Merotoro in Mexico City (where he partnered with Gabriela Cámara, known locally for opening Cala in San Francisco); and Verde y Crema, a contemporary farm-to-table gastropub in Tijuana.

Jair also recently partnered with Louis-Antonie Luyt to turn Jair’s family winery in Tecate into Mexico’s first (I believe) commerically producing natural winery. The wine is called Bichi (border slang for “naked”) and we have their Nebbiolo at Salsipuedes. We’ll be pouring it at the dinner, of course, along with some other treats.
