Published in the oldest European restaurant and hotel guide, Michelin stars honor the culinary world’s top chefs and restaurants for their innovation and techniques. While most people have to travel far or may never get to experience dining in a Michelin-star restaurant, at this culinary event, participants will have the opportunity to meet and eat with a variety of chefs who have earned multiple Michelin stars. These chefs have traveled from Europe and the Americas to give gourmet workshops during the day and cook for the evening dining events here in Riviera Nayarit. Learn from the world’s most talented and creative minds, and take a few new skills and ideas home with you from one of the top culinary festivals in Mexico.

With training from around the world, these talented individuals can be counted among the culinary world’s top chefs. Several of them cook at the top luxury hotels in Puerto Vallarta, and others run the kitchens at your favorite gourmet restaurants, like Restaurant Tintoque, Barrio Bistro, and Jardín Nebulosa, where they blend the latest innovations from around the world with the traditions of Mexican cuisine. Taste their unique culinary creations and be inspired by their world-class cooking techniques at this exciting culinary event. For a description of each workshop, see the full program online.
