Taste of Mexico Tulum Food, Spirits and Wine Festival
The festival was started three years ago by Diane DiMeo, who continues to serve as TOM’s founder and executive director. “I created the Taste of Mexico experience to bring Mexico to the world so that the world can learn and understand the artisanal culture of this amazing country through food, culture, spirits, wine and beer,” said DiMeo.
“Our third edition for 2019 promises more chefs, more booze, more culture and more excitement for our guests who come to Tulum from around the globe to savor our unique caliente style of life.”
The American/European chefs included Michelin-starred Merlin Labron-Johnson formerly of Portland in London; Michelin-starred chef Jeremiah Langhorne from The Dabney in Washington D.C.; Grace Ramirez a television personality and cookbook author from New York; and Claudette Zepeda-Wilkins from Jardin in San Diego.
Zamas Tulum was a series of small plates from a bright, lively ceviche to a soulful tamal colado with pumpkin seed dip that sung of ancient cultures and modern techniques in each bite.
Intrepid festival attendees could also opt for a six-course Cannabis tasting menu in a secret, password-required location. Tulum serves as a rather ideal spot for such an event given the wide availability of cannabis products.
To close out the week, the beautiful beachfront Restaurant MIA hosted a white party on Sunday night. All guests donned their breeziest clothes, a feat that’s effortless in a Mexican resort town where linen and crochet rule. Four of the guest chefs created an exquisite meal, each plate paired with a cocktail or spirit.
