Create Baja-Inspired Dishes At Home From SOL Mexican Cocina Head Chef Deb Schneider

STUDIO CITY ( — Executive Chef Deborah Schneider of SOL Mexican Cocina visited the KCAL9 studios Wednesday to cook up some dishes from her book Baja! Cooking on the Edge.

The cookbook features a mixture of authentic recipes and Chef Deb’s own Baja-inspired dishes – ingenious creations for which Bon Appétit magazine named her “the reigning queen of San Diego chefs.”

Baja! features more than 150 easy-to-follow recipes, peppered with fantastic stories and images that are as vibrant in color as the dishes are in flavor.

Chef Deb explores these different cultural influences of Baja street food — everything from the classic Fish Tacos and Seafood Cocktels, to a wide range of inspired meat-based tacos — chicken, pork, chorizo — and fresh salsas.

The uniquely Baja recipes featured includes delights like Clams in Tequila Butter, One-Pan Paella, Garlic Cilantro Steak, and Chocolate-Jalapeño Truffles.

Baja! Cooking on the Edge is available at Chef Deb’s restaurants, SOL Cocina in Newport Beach, CA and Scottsdale, AZ, and solita Tacos & Margaritas in Huntington Beach, CA. The book is also available on
