Yucatán & Mexico City
Pinnacle of Craft
Celebrate the cuisine culture of Mexico with Jorge Vallejo
October 13 - 19, 2023
7 days, 6 nights in Mérida, the Yucatán & Mexico City
Per person, limited to just 12 guests
Edible flowers and Mayan herbs top a seemingly endless procession of small plates that showcase the best of Mexican fare — an exquisite collision of ancient tradition and modern flair. All week you’ve met chefs and artisans at the peak of their craft, passionate humans dedicated to preserving and elevating these traditions for generations to come. You’ve dined in street markets, in humble family homes and at some of the world’s most lauded restaurants. Tonight, full of joy, you pause to contemplate where you are: somewhere between two worlds, old and new. It’s exhilarating, inspiring and sublime — a rare opportunity to share in something truly special.
You’re joined by Jorge Vallejo, chef and owner of Mexico City’s Quintonil — rated the 9th best restaurant in the world. Jorge is as genius as he is humble, a steward of the highest form of culinary art. His mission is to show the pureness and simplicity of ancient Mexican cuisine in luxurious new ways. We’ll dine alongside Jorge at his restaurants Ix’im, deep in the Yucatán jungle, and Quintonil. We cannot think of a better human to share the cultural and culinary magic of Mexico City and the Yucatán, ingredient by delicious ingredient.
Join us for unparalleled access and behind-the-scenes meetups with chefs, farmers and artisans—all incredible creative minds that breathe life into Mexican cuisine culture today.
