Campestres: Eating Outdoors in the Valle de Guadalupe

Hosted by

Benito Molina is a noted chef in Mexico. He owns the restaurant Manzanilla in Ensenada and his seasonal campestre, or outdoor restaurant, Silvestre, is now open for business in the Valle de Guadalupe. Molina was one of the first to open a campestre in Baja's wine country, but this summer there will be as many as 15 campestres operating. Typically open only in the summer months, campestres are temporary restaurants where chefs cook over live fire and serve customers at picnic style tables. The view at Silvestre is one of the best in the Valley de Guadalupe.

You can also see Molina on TV. He and his wife co-star in the reality show Benito y Solange.
