The Malecon of Marina Nuevo Vallarta, in Riviera Nayarit, will host the 5th Taste of Nuevo Vallarta and the 17th annual Chili Cook-off to be held on Saturday, December 9 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. An event organized by the Vallarta Yacht Club (VYC), with the support of the Convention and Visitors Bureau of the Riviera Nayarit (OVC) and the Association of Hotels and Motels of Bahía de Banderas (AHMBB).
As every year there will be a variety of “tasting” offered by some of the best restaurants in Nuevo Vallarta and its surroundings and, of course, the fantastic chili, made by professionals and non-professionals who will compete to show who has the best recipe and flavor. The participation can be individual, in group or by restaurant.
Rudy Trejo, Manager of the Vallarta Yacht Club, reported that the dynamics are simple: attendees can buy tickets for the sample for only $20 pesos, which can then be exchanged for tastings or drinks.
Net proceeds will go to charities, divided equally between the Cleft Palate Program of the International Friendship Club and Toys for Tots of the Vallarta Naval League. All participating restaurants and competitors will donate their time and their food for this great cause.
Parking will be available at Marina Nuevo Vallarta and there will be a water taxi available from Vallarta Yacht Club and Paradise Village.
“Last year we had more than 30 stands, we hope to have more this year. This is one of the first opportunities of the season to make your restaurant known to hundreds of tourists and local residents,” commented Rudy Trejo.
The registrations are still open for exhibitors and competitors of the chili recipe. More information at Tel. 297-2222 or write to: [email protected]
