Are you one of those people for whom the word ‘vacation’ is synonymous with ‘wining and dining’? If so, book your ticket and head down for the Riviera Maya Food and Wine Festival, taking place from March 12-15, 2015.
A Perfect Pairing: Your Beach Vacation with the Riviera Maya Food & Wine Festival
The Riviera Maya Food and Wine Festival was created for those who enjoy the stimulation of all five senses. While soaking up the incredible beach vistas and lazy days spent in and out of the crystal blue water, you can also enjoy delicious food and wine, not to mention input from some of the worlds most renowned members of the food, wine, and spirit industries.
The Food and Wine Festival has something for everyone – those who love to prepare food as well as those who love to eat it. There are several different dinner events taking place and all require tickets. The festival is still several weeks away and one of the four has already sold out, so we recommend purchasing your tickets soon. The three remaining ticket-only events include:
- The Star Chefs Dinner. A culinary journey through dishes prepared by top chefs and food artisans from Mexico and around the globe.
- Divas de la Cocina Mexicana. This special event features a five course meal prepared by 10 of Mexico’s finest female chefs.
- Barefoot Elegance! What would this festival be without a dinner on the beach? That’s what you get with Barefoot Elegance! – along with amazing French foods and wines.
Festival-goers can also attend a fun lecture, presented by renowned avant-garde Spanish chefs Juan Mari Arzak and Joan Roca. They’ll be talking about the evolution of cuisine around the world. Or, participate in one of six cooking classes that will take place over the course of the weekend.
