What to expect from Best of Mexico Dinner?

For every edition of Wine & Food Festival we invite one of the most relevant chefs of Mexico to celebrate their career and brilliance. This year we invited Jorge Vallejo, a mexican young talent that has emerged as one of the most extraordinary chefs of the new generation, surprising even international media with his dishes at Quintonil in Mexico City, considered as the best in Mexico and No. 12 in the World’s 50 Best.

The closest friends of Vallejo, all of them great chefs as well, will present the menu for this once in a lifetime dinner. The five of them will be sharing the kitchen to offer a culinary experience like no other for the lovers of Mexican Cuisine.

The wine pairing of this dinner will be selected by the Wine Directors of the Festival, all of them internationally awarded for their knowledge. Nespresso® will be pairing the dessert culminating this exceptional experience with the flavor of the best gourmet coffee.

As part of this experience, fashion designer Erica Flores, will astound the diners with a runway inspired by the dishes of the chefs, creating an authentic “Lotería” of flavors, colors and shapes that will delight the senses.
