Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Festival Gourmet International, the annual food and wine event that has been tempting the taste buds of foodies and capturing the attention of the culinary world for the last 24 years, will celebrate its 25th edition from November 19-24, 2019.
A Puerto Vallarta tradition, the Festival features renowned international chefs who come to share their culinary secrets with local chefs, treating diners to unique menus created especially for the occasion; Theme Nights, made memorable by magnificent gourmet menus paired with excellent wines; Cooking Demonstrations by some of Vallarta's most recognized chefs; Gourmet Safaris - culinary expeditions to four different restaurants; and many other "tasty" events.
"The International Gourmet Festival makes Puerto Vallarta a benchmark in world cuisine," said Javier Aranda Pedrero, director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board. "It brings attention to our excellent restaurants, many of them offering spectacular views of the Bay of Banderas and its beautiful beaches - an ideal setting for patrons to enjoy delicious gastronomic offerings while enjoying the most spectacular sunsets on the Mexican Pacific."
A lot has changed since the event's inception in 1995. Over the past few years, the Puerto Vallarta Gourmet Festival has expanded to include fine dining restaurants in the Riviera Nayarit and Tepic. In fact, 30 restaurants and hotels in the greater Banderas Bay area are participating in this 25th edition.
Long a resort destination for beaches and golf courses, a concentration of some of the finest and most awarded restaurants in the country have made Mexico's Pacific Coast region one of the most sophisticated gourmet destinations in the world.
Festival Gourmet International has successfully hosted a vibrant salute to the great culinary power of this part of Mexico for the past 24 years, attracting over 20,000 epicurean connoisseurs annually.
