There’s always something cooking at Capella Ixtapa! This March, we are organizing a culinary event: Fusion of Flavors of Guerrero and Michoacan. Capella Ixtapa’s Chef Alexander Branch and Chef Miguel Baltazar from Hotel Virrey de Mendoza from Morelia, Mexico, will be hosting a three-day gourmet event with cocktails, kitchen demonstrations, Chef’s Table, brunch, and other events. I am excited already!
Hotel Virrey de Mendoza is a very well known and popular place to go to in Morelia. The area is well known for it’s rich cuisine, and Chef Alexander Branch believes Hotel Virrey de Mendoza is a perfect match for our culinary event. “By bringing Chef Baltazar’s experience and rich traditional Michoacan cuisine to Capella Ixtapa, combined with the traditional dishes of our own Guerrero region, we will offer our guests a truly memorable experience,” says Chef Alexander.
And what will Chef Alexander be cooking? “I am focusing on bringing the little-known treasures of Guerrero cuisine to a modern and contemporary light. I will prepare old world recipes and give them a new twist, trying to make them a true culinary experience, combining the best from the traditional and contemporary cuisine. A perfect example of this is our signature “Nejo” Tamal, which is a tamal done with corn ash.” Needless to say, I am intrigued!
Chef Alexander went on to explain “The event is a great opportunity for the guests, Chef Baltazar, myself and both hotels to build a relationship with the common love of good food. I am very excited and eager to start cooking and learning from what I am certain will be an amazing experience.”
I share his excitement and look forward to all the delights both chefs will prepare for us! This three-day event, March 1-3, 2013, will be a true culinary experience, exploring the amazing flavors of Mexican cuisine from Guerrero and Morelia. I hope you can join us!
