21st Annual Puerto Vallarta International Gourmet Festival Event Includes 7 Course Tasting, Tequila Cocktails, Musical Entertainment and Chef Meet & Greet.
On November 20th, the executive chefs of Mexico’s Foodie Resorts, Velas Resorts in Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit, unite for a Behind the Scenes culinary event during the 21st Annual Puerto Vallarta International Gourmet Festival at the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit.
The gastronomic magic begins after grabbing a handcrafted welcome cocktail for a seven-stop epicurean tasting tour through the resort’s kitchen. Along the way guests will have the opportunity to converse with and sample signature bites from the four attending chefs – Master Chef of France Michel Mustière (Grand Velas Riviera Maya), Claudio Hotter (Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit), Jorge Sierra (Velas Vallarta), and Eliseo Ibarra (Casa Velas). Waiting on the other end of the tour is a grandiose arrangement of Patron cocktails, petit fours, artisanal cheeses, chocolate fountain, mixologists, and live music.
The International Gourmet Festival takes place from November 16-22 when over 30 world-renown chefs will offer a-la-carte gourmet dining, chef’s tables, gourmet safaris and wine tastings on a daily basis. The festival has attracted over 400,000 gourmet fans and over 500 international chefs to Puerto Vallarta since 1995.
