Gastronomic Log: Vegetarian Recipe
Whether haute cuisine, culinary art or love for food; gastronomy plays an important part for world travelers seeking to experience a new culture through its flavors and traditions. Maître Cuisinier de France, Chef Michel Mustière – who leads the collection of restaurants and fine dining experience at Velas Resorts – seems to understand this premise perfectly.
He has recently launched a new project involving twenty or so chefs under his command, to interpret, yes, interpret, culinary creations which are authentic works of art (a delight for the eye!) while providing a unique dining experience.
This new proposal from Chef Mustière brings us one of the best vegetarian recipes by Chef Roberto Sierra, Chef of gourmet restaurant Frida at Grand Velas Los Cabos, which we are pleased to share with you today.
