We are about three months away from Capella Pedregal’s 2nd Annual Food and Wine Festival, A Taste of Capella, but the preparations for it are already underway! This upcoming July 10-13 we will be hosting renowned Chefs and lovers of sun, fun and of course, fine eating.
During our four day gastronomic festival you will be able to meet, interact with and enjoy exquisite cuisine by acknowledged culinary masters, among them Chef Kent Rathbun of Abacus, Chef Dean Fearing of Fearing’s, Chef Tim Hollingsworth of French Laundry, Philippe Schmidt of Philippe’s, and our own Executive Chef, Yvan Mucharraz and Pastry Chef Lauren Sung Wong Tee.
Last year’s Food and Wine Festival was an amazing success. I can still remember some of the fantastic dishes we tasted, and how fun it all was; it felt like visiting the chefs at their summer home, having fun on the beach while cooking, grilling and tasting amazing food, wine and spirits under the stars. I can only imagine what surprises are in store for guests this year!
Marco Bustamante, our Food and Beverage Director, and a curator of the Food and Wine Festival, A Taste Of Capella, explained that this year the guests will be able to participate at a wine reception with the celebrity chefs at the El Farallon terrace, attend cooking demonstrations, partake in a Tequila seminar, enjoy a barbecue party, attend a gourmet five-course dinner and attend an after-party with the featured chefs! All in just a few days!
In the following weeks I will be talking with each of the Chefs about their plans for the event—and of course I’ll share it all here. If you have any questions that you would like me to ask our Chefs, please leave a comment below!
