Other notable guests during this summer’s festivities included a unique combination of international mixologists, spirits and wine experts.
The 2015 festivities began with a seaside cocktail reception featuring boutique vintners showcasing their wines alongside perfectly paired canapés prepared by our guest chefs. Other events over the four days included cooking demonstrations with the chefs, a tequila seminar, wine tastings, a beach barbecue, and the highlight of the festival was the re-creation of a real Mexican Mercado (or open air market) featuring unique Mexican street food and the other components of the Mercado - from jewelry to pottery to authentic entertainment and performers. This extravaganza closed with an elaborate five-course dinner, with each course individually prepared by a different chef, and a celebratory after- party.
