Grand Velas Los Cabos to Host Kitchen Fiesta Festival

On June 24th, James Beard Award winners, top Food Network chefs, Michelin star recipients and more standout culinary professionals will join together for a behind-the-scenes insider tasting experience at Grand Velas Los Cabos.

The event begins for guests after grabbing a welcome cocktail from celebrity mixologist Mia Mastroianni of SpikeTV’s Bar Rescue before embarking on a tasting tour in the resort’s kitchen and signature restaurants. Along the way guests will have the opportunity to converse with and sample signature bites from the chefs – Penny Davidi (Food Network Star), Gilles Epié (Michelin Star Recipient), Maneet Chauhan (James Beard Award of Excellence Winner and Chopped judge), Eddie Jackson (Food Network Star season 11 winner), Elizabeth Falkner (Culinary Hall of Famer and Food Network chef), Adam Gertler (Food Network’s “Kid in a Candy Store” Host), Katsuji Tanabe (Bravo’s Top Chef), and Ken Barnoski (U.S. Food Chef). Additional chefs include Juan Licerio Alcala, executive chef of Grand Velas Los Cabos and creator of the $25K World’s Most Expensive Taco; Jorge Sierra, executive chef of sister property Velas Vallarta; and restaurant chefs from each of Grand Velas Los Cabos’ five restaurants.
