Millesime GNP Weekend

Both locals and vistors LOVED Millesime GNP Weekend, a unique culinary celebration that recently took place at The Rosewood, with other events at the Plaza de Toros, Bulla restaurant and Tene Latin Cuisine at Casa 1810 Parque Hotel Boutique. Millesime has been successful since it was created in 2007, as a concept to promote the best cuisine in the world. Unlike the previous editions, Millesime GNP Weekend was more social than corporate and was open to the public with thousands of people coming in from CDMX, Querétaro, Guanajuato , San Luis Potosí and Guadalajara in order to be part of the culinary experience. To tell you the truth, I never got tired of everyone telling me how great the food is in SMA and how much they love to come here, especially to eat. We especially loved the attention that was given to our local chefs: Marcela Bolano of Marsala, cocina con acentos; Abel Hernández of Restaurante The Rooftop at Selina, SMA; Irving Cano of Restaurante Trazo 1810 and Tene Latin Cuisine; Omar Alejandro Henríquez Martintz of Restaurant Áperi; Pedro Martin and Francisco Jose Jimenez (Kiko) of Restaurant Bulla, SMA; Vincent Wallez of the Rosewood and José (Paco) Francisco González of Restaurant Tarragón. Here are some of the faces of Millesime – the chefs, press, wineries and products that made Millesime a huge success this year. I am reminded once again that SMA needs a food festival. The last one we hosted was in 2017; way too long ago for a city whose culinary offerings are some of the best in Mexico.
