1. CONSTANT INNOVATION AND CREATION
“Creativity is innate, it just needs to be cultivated”. This observation by world-class pastry chef, David Gil, explains why a number of world-renowned visiting chefs are brought to work beside and inspire the professional dream-team of chefs and cooks responsible for producing the delicacies of Palace Resorts’ restaurants.
In this particular summit, presentations and workshops are led by influential culinary figures such as Vidal Elias Murillo, Oriol Balaguer, and Jesus Escalera, placing a strong onus on creativity, inspiration, flawless technique and sublime flavor.
Partnership-wise, winner of World’s Best Pastry Chef 2018, Antonio Bachour is behind the selection of prize-winning desserts offered at Palace Resorts’ properties in Mexico and Jamaica. Executive pastry chefs underwent robust training with Bachour to learn about his specific techniques, tailored recipes, and unmatched presentation, to ensure each dessert uniquely reflects an exquisite work of art.
This isn’t the first time that the upper echelons of culinary masters have brought their expertise to Cancun, especially Moon Palace. In 2018, Spain's Michelin-starred chef Joan Roca hosted a unique two-night culinary experience exclusively at the resort, followed by Massimo Bottura’s “Osteria Francescana
Experience”, where guests partook in a dining experience with proceeds going to Food for Soul, sustaining community kitchens around the world.
2. CHOOSING THE FINEST INGREDIENTS
Sublime flavor calls for great ingredients.
Now, what if those ingredients were not only great but were actually carefully selected from among the finest in the world? Sounds like something only the most exclusive establishments would do, doesn’t it?
Let’s face it, in your typical all-inclusive setting, you are highly unlikely to come across superior ingredients.
By adding this extra attention to gourmet detail, Palace Resorts has essentially become the benchmark for fine dining restaurants in Cancun and beyond. And when a Michelin-starred Italian chef such as Giuseppe Iannotti is mind-blown at being able to work with “the very best brands of olive oil, right here”, there’s no room for doubt.
Add a generous helping of Certified Angus Beef® (served as a standard at Palace Resorts restaurants), fish which is guaranteed to be fresh, plus the world’s finest brand of chocolate, Valhrona (to mention just a few of the top-notch ingredients used), and you have the perfect recipe for exceeding guests’ culinary expectations.
