Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten to host Cinco de Mayo fiesta at One&Only Palmilla

Gourmands and sun-seekers alike can enjoy a culinary-inspired Cinco de Mayo weekend with Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten at the legendary One&Only Palmilla resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, from Friday, 4 May to Sunday, 6 May.

Located on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, One&Only Palmilla offers sweeping views of the Sea of Cortez and some of the most memorable experiences in Mexico. With unrivaled dining in Los Cabos, the resort has variety of exceptional restaurants including SEARED providing the freshest seafood and finest cus of steak, and fresh sushi and cuviches at SUVICHE, both in collaboration with Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. In addition, Agua by Larbi, serves an authentic menu of seasonally-driven Mexican farm-to-table cuisine in a spectacular al fresco location on the water’s edge. The resort offers bespoke wellness experiences including the newly-introduced Temazcal, and guests can indulge in an array of water activities and surfing experiences at one of the few swimmable beaches in Los Cabos.

Led by Chef Jean-Georges, alongside Executive Chef Larbi Dahrouch and Chef Stuart Roger, the weekend begins on Friday, 4 May with a guided tour of Los Tamarindos, an organic local farm which will provide indigenous herbs and vegetables for the hands-on cooking class to follow. The farm’s bounty will perfectly pair with fresh-locally caught seafood from the Sea of Cortez for an authentic Cinco de Mayo lunch. The following evening, Chef Jean-Georges will serve a personally crafted dinner with tailored wine pairings at SEARED.

Agua by Larbi, a restaurant that commands one of the resort's most enviable seaside locations, will be serving a Mexican a la carte menu with tequila pairing to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, while wine-lovers can partake in a “Meet the Wine Maker” experience with California cult winery Sine Qua Non.

“We are thrilled to be welcoming Chef Jean-Georges to One&Only Palmilla to curate an exceptional culinary-inspired Cinco de Mayo fiesta,” said Robert Logan, General Manager, One&Only Palmilla. “We are embracing the best of Mexico with the finest local ingredients and gourmet experiences to offer our guests a celebratory weekend to remember.”
