Famous French culinary academy Le Cordon Bleu is back to Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit presenting the best of International Fusion Cuisine, this June 16th to 26th, with guest chefs Patrick Martin, Olivier Bué, Olivier Calvez y Miguel Quezada. During this festival invited chefs will create an special menu at Piaf Restaurant with no extra cost for Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit guests but also open to all public, besides cooking classes will be offered. Riviera Nayarit is a destination distinguished by its gastronomy, not only because international cuisine has been given great impulse now days, thanks to the establishment of highend hotels like Grand Velas, but because the strong influence of European and Asiatic flavors that’s been received on the region since the Spanish Colony.
A truly tasteful experience is the promise to the Gastronomic Festival Le Cordon Bleu. Patrick Martin, Le Cordon Bleu’s Vice-President of Culinary Education, has created this astonishing menu together with other guest chefs.
Surprises could include true Mexican touches since Martin, despite being responsible for the opening of Le Cordon Bleu’s schools in over 40 different countries around the world, is been for the last ten years a permanent Mexican resident. “I’m half French, half Mexican now”, he uses to say. But for him a very important part of the festival is the cooking classes, since education is the main porpoise of Le Cordon Bleu. The guest chefs will present three dishes –entrance, main course and desert— on a demonstration and will share recipes and secrets of the culinary technique afterwards.
Exclusive events like this make Riviera Nayarit a leader destination when it comes to Best Eat and gourmet experience, an important tourism attraction on a region where every day new high quality restaurants open every day.
The Riviera Nayarit’s Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CBV) congratulates Grand Velas resort for the great promotional efforts to attract high end tourism to the destination with events like to the Gastronomic Festival Le Cordon Bleu.
