These Dallas Chefs Will Be Cooking in Mexico

Can't go? They'll be whipping up a local sneak peek.
By |

We sometimes know the sorts of things chefs are up to in their off hours from their Instagram feeds—foraging for morels or trekking for wine in Italy. The Lone Star Series Food, Art and Music Festival to be held over five weeks at the El Dorado Royale resort on the road between Cancun and Tulum, near Carmen Del Playa, Mexico gives us a good sense of what a handful of Dallas chefs will be doing with themselves and their knife skills in the summer and early fall.

If there were ever any proof that Texas is one of the leading exporters of vacationers to Mexico, and that within that market, Dallas is prime, this of course is it. The series is the first of its kind at the resort, and for the line-up (2 chefs will team up to lead each of the five week-long sessions), Karisma Hotels and Resorts has hit up a hot roster (our own Matt McCallister, Houston’s Hugo Ortega).

But this is what it means for you. Should you be intrigued by the notion of an out-of-this world vacation on pristine sands, you can start dreaming. But also, each chef is hosting what amounts to an open house to titillate you with bites representative of what they’ll be serving in Mexico. If that sounds up your alley, the schedule is below.

Jon Stevens, Stock and Barrel: April 5, 2017 6 p.m.

Matt McCallister, Filament: April 17, 2017 6 p.m.

Daniele Puleo, Cibo Divino: April 20, 2017 6 p.m.

Robert Lyford, Patina Green: May 11, 2017 6 p.m.

Abraham Salum, Salum: May 23, 2017 6 p.m.
