The culinary world’s top chefs are gathering in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit for an extraordinary week of gourmet workshops and mouth-watering meals. These chefs, many of which have earned Michelin Stars and other culinary awards, will gather for one of the most exquisite culinary festivals in Mexico and Latin America: Vallarta Nayarit Gastronomica 2018 from October 14-18. Foodies who can’t get enough of watching star-studded cooking shows and trying the latest, innovative restaurants will be amazed by the brilliant culinary skills on display in the gourmet workshops during this extraordinary Riviera Nayarit event.
Chef Ángel León is one of the culinary world’s top chefs when it comes to innovation and his study of seafood, which have earned him three prestigious Michelin stars. Rather than settling with tradition, Chef León is pioneering new ways of breeding fish, preparing their meat, and using non-traditional parts in his dishes. His restaurant in Spain, Aponiente, is considered one of the best in the world, and it features a 27-course meal that allows guests to eat their way up the food chain, starting with phytoplankton. During Vallarta Nayarit Gastronomica 2018, he’ll be showcasing his talent and skills to teach attendees of the Riviera Nayarit event about his love for cooking.
Another chef who has been awarded Michelin stars and who will be presenting at this esteemed culinary event is Andoni Luis Aduriz. In the Basque region of Spain, chef Aduriz combines flavors and traditions from high in the mountains to deep in the sea during a multi-course meal. For over 20 years, his restaurant, Mugaritz, has taken on the serious business of gourmet dining and added an element of fun through surprising pairings of wine and food. The restaurant closes for four months each year to devote time to exploring new cuisines and techniques, making Mugaritz one of the top-ranked restaurants in the gourmet-dining world. For a chance to watch chef Aduriz perform culinary magic, be sure to attend the gourmet workshops at Vallarta Nayarit Gastronomica.

Using the principles of garden to table, chef Wulff uses the unique tropical flavors of Vallarta to invent new gourmet dishes.
