Gastronomic Event at Capella Ixtapa Resort – Fabulous!!!

Ixtapa Zihuatanejo is famous for its wonderful restaurants and fabulous foods!  In March, tourists and residents in the area were treated to a wonderful gastronomic event at “A Mares”, the five-star restaurant at Capella Ixtapa Resort in Ixtapa, one of the destination’s award-winning properties.

The gastronomic event featured culinary creations representing the states of Guerrero and Michoacán, prepared by Executive Chefs Alexander Branch of Capella Ixtapa and Miguel Angel Baltazar Pedraza of Hotel Virrey de Mendoza in Morelia, Michoacán.

The states of Guerrero and Michoacán are adjacent and Ixtapa Zihuatanejo, Guerrero and Morelia, Michoacán are Sister Cities.  The dining creations and contrast of flavors from these two states of Mexico were amazing!

“I thought the dinner was exquisite and the wine pairings exceptional. The service was stellar and the view magnificent.”  Linda Fox, Zihuatanejo

“The evening has gone down as one of our most memorable experiences!!  Fabulous food and drink, beautifully presented.  Truly a delight AND an opportunity that we hope will be repeated!!”  Louis & Janet Calloway, Ann Arbor, Michigan

“Dining in Capella’s breathtaking surroundings could have taken your mind off the delicious eight course meal served by two young creative master chefs, but given that we were all focused on our plates, the food was the thing!  We enjoyed traditional tastes of Michoacán and Guerrero in fresh interpretations. Intensely flavorful dishes, served with precision and thoughtfulness, made for a memorable dinner with friends new and long time.” Barbara Erickson, Barra de Potosi/San Miguel de Allende
