Who doesn’t love going South of the Border? Food and spirits are vital elements of Mexican culture. Come to the Four Seasons Punta Mita for the relaxed pace, the sensational adios to the sun at day’s end, delectable dining and cooking classes, there is also a fun informative Tequila Blending Class. Just say Si!
When you visit for a few days, spend some time with the chef in a class – imagine your global flair at your next brunch – salsa music in the background, pungent sliced limes, small bowls of coarse sea salt, frosty Margaritas and Chef Jorge González’ spicy aromatic Chilaquiles. Todo Bien!
International Culinary adventures abound at the Four Seasons – every morning, catch of the day is delivered by local fisherman, look for them on the beach in front of Bahia Restaurant, where grilling is perfected. Catch & Cook experience, explore Bahia de Banderas by private boat, catch your dinner and prepare it with the chef for your dinner. Head to the kitchen for an interactive class celebrating the flavors, methods and tools of pre-Hispanic cooking. Create a traditional meal outdoors in the Iku Garden using indigenous ingredients and equipment inspired by ancient cultures, including an underground oven and a molcajete.
Mexican cooking is more than chips and guacamole, although an afternoon of boogie boarding and sand lounging is certainly enriched by a platter of these tasty salty snacks accompanied by a frosty pitcher of Margaritas!
During my recent week at Four Seasons Punta Mita, a breakfast meeting included executive Chef Jorge González, recently appointed to oversee their newest restaurant Dos Catrinas. What better way to enjoy a work meeting in a private villa overlooking the Pacific? Dos Catrinas restaurant will marry Mexico’s past and future with a new culturally rich dining experience set in a modern, reimagined space. Designed by Colombian architect Saul Sasson, Dos Catrinas will bring together Mexico’s traditional culture, urban lifestyle and history in a two-story space with ocean views.
Chef Jorge, had of course, orchestrated our magnificent breakfast – we begged for the Chilaquiles recipe – true to Four Seasons exceptional service, the recipe was delivered to my Presidential Suite before I returned! We loved chatting about food and culture with Jorge, do follow him on Instagram- his posts are mouthwatering! Jorge González (@jorgehglez)
And for your upcoming Spicy Mexican Brunch – Chilaquiles!
Muchas Gracias Jorge and the entire Four Seasons Punta Mita team for our lovely work week!
