My Valentine's day was in Mexico this time with Chef Martin San Roman from La Terrasse San Roman in Valle de Guadalupe Baja California. Right inside of Alximia a very interesting Winery from Valle de Guadalupe I think one of the most original for their design and history.
Chef San Roman, open his cuisine "Baja - Provencale" for me and my camera and show me his magic at work. He has a great team that had been working with him for years. To be able to create a team like that you need to be great on leadership, coordination and organization and he has all those skills. He takes care with detail and precision every single detail to obtain the best quality.
I though San Valentine's day it wasn't the perfect day for a photoshoot, my thoughts were almost negatives. But after this experience I have to say it has been one of the best Valentine's in years. Even all the people around, the orders, the tension on the kitchen etc. I tried to be a ghost for them.
