The Chefs at Capella Pedregal’s Food & Wine: Kent Rathbun, Johnny Iuzzini, Marco Bustamante and Kevin Rathbun.


This July Capella Pedregal successfully inaugurated their Food and Wine Festival, and brought together the talents of top chefs from across the U.S. and Mexico:  Chef Kent Rathbun, owner and head chef of  restaurants Abacus, Jasper’s and Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen, with locations throughout Texas;  Chef Johnny Iuzzini, Executive Pastry Chef of restaurant Jean Georges and Perry Street in New York City;  Chef Kevin Rathbun, renowned for Atlanta-based restaurants Rathbun’s and Kevin Rathbun Steak & Krog Bar;  and Capella Pedregal’s own accomplished Executive Chef, Marco Bustamante.

Together with Capella Pedregal guests and residents we enjoyed five unforgettable days sampling exquisite cuisine and taking part in educational gastronomical experiences.  Some of the activities included cooking demonstrations;  wine and cheese tastings;  parties on the beach with chef-prepared food stations, and the spectacular (and sold out!) 5 course Gala Dinner.

The feedback on the event was over the top, therefore Capella Pedregal already announced the dates for their 2013 event. Save the dates: 10-14 July, 2013!

If not earlier, I hope to see you in Cabo San Lucas and at Capella Pedregal at the next Food & Wine Festival. See more photographs from the event on Capella Pedregal’s Facebook Page: Facebook.com/CapellaPedregal
