Mesamérica, the grand annual Mexico City showcase of Mexican gastronomy and culture developed by Enrique Olvera, Mexico’s leading chef, is coming to San Miguel de Allende and Hotel Matilda for the first time. MesaAbierta will be four days of culinary festivities, March 20-23, 2014, including a signature dinner at Hotel Matilda where Chef Olvera operates Moxi restaurant.
A number of renowned chefs will participate in MesaAbierta, including Mauro Colagreco of Le Mirazur in Menton, France, Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli of Frankies Spuntino in New York, and Rick Bayless of Topolobampo and Frontera Grill in Chicago. Two days of “picnics” will feature foods from San Miguel’s Farmers Market, live music, wine tastings, cooking workshops and more.
San Miguel, the crown jewel of colonial Mexico, was named the world’s #1 destination in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards. Pujol, Chef Olvera’s Mexico City restaurant, is #17 on the prestigious San Pellegrino list of the world’s top 50 restaurants. Hotel Matilda is a dynamic contemporary hotel celebrated for its chic lifestyle-focused guest experience and one-of-a-kind art and culinary events. http://www.mesamerica.mx/2014/mesaabierta/ www.hotelmatilda.com 1-855-MATILDA
