The Festival Gourmet International will celebrate its 25th edition from November 19-24, 2019, with over 30 international chefs participating.
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.
