    One of the hottest food trends today is "Baja Med," the fusion of Mexican, Mediterranean, and Asian flavors pioneered in Marcela's home state of Baja. In this episode she gives us her own take on this movement with these delectable dishes: Shrimp Gobernador Tacos with shrimp, peppers, and tomatoes; Baja-Style Tuna Tartare with capers, olives, and sesame seeds; an original-style Caesar salad (which was invented in Tijuana); and figs cooked in a sweet syrup made from Baja wine and honey.
