San José del Cabo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México.
San José del Cabo, – September 27th, 2017 El Ganzo Independence Weekend – Hotel El Ganzo was the host for this fantastic duo of mother and son, Celia Florian and Alam Mendez, masters of the Oaxaqueña cuisine and founders of Las Quince Letras in Oaxaca and Pasillo de Humo in Mexico City.
Alam Mendez serves as founder and chef of Pasillo de Humo in the heart of México City, and Celia Florian commands Las Quince Letras located in Oaxaca. Both of these restaurants serve as a prime example of what the regional cuisine is all about.
This is the second time a chef residence takes place at Hotel El Ganzo. The Chefs were able to showcase their talent with a mixture of the traditional cuisine with a contemporary approach. The duo created a special menu with the objective of celebrating the Mexican Independence Day as well as to collect funds for the reconstruction of the El Ganzo Community Center.
Each of their seven courses expressed an avant-garde vision, without losing its regional roots; using prime ingredients as well as local ones, Celia and Alam were able to translate this vision to their plates.
All the money that was raised during the dinner was given to the reconstruction of the El Ganzo Community Center, a place that helps the community of Los Cabos, the guests, and artists to interact on a creative level; a bridge where art and sustainability meets to create a sanctuary of learning.
“Hotel El Ganzo is a peaceful place where your mind and soul can be one, a place you can find magic and inspiration wherever you look”. Said Celia Florian during interview.
