In collaboration with our amazing local, private chefs, we are able to bring our guests an amazing “foodie” experience right in the comforts of their villa or in our community Gather space. Our chefs curate featured menus that blend local ingredients and infusions of flavors throughout the meals, making it a full cultural experience for your palate! Whether it is with subtle hints of ginger or blazing and colorful peppers, or ripe mango infused salsas, the dishes simply work their magic for vegetarians or carnivores alike.
We have been known to always use the local cornucopia of colors and flavors to make the food not just a meal but an unforgettable experience!!!
A family from Texas recently enjoyed a “Surf and Turf” feast with us! Starting with a fresh Tuna sashimi, caprese salad, and nachos for an appetizer and steak, shimp, and Lobsters for the main course with a side of steamed vegetables. We paired the meal with our Santa Ema Cabernet Sauvignon wine which was a perfect compliment to the food.
The family savored every bite and enjoyed their time together and the experience with chef Michael. They said they slept so well that evening.
“We travel because I want my kids to learn, as I learned, that there are a million ways to live, a million ways to eat, a million ways to dress and speak and view the world. I want them to know that “our way” isn’t the right way, but just one way, that children all over the world, no matter how different they seem, are just like the children in our neighborhood—they love to play, to discover, to learn. I want my kids to learn firsthand and up close that different isn’t bad, but instead that different is exciting and wonderful and worth taking the time to understand. I want them to see themselves as bit players in a huge, sweeping, beautiful play, not as the main characters in the drama of our living room. I want my kids to taste and smell and experience the biggest possible world, because every bite of it, every taste and texture and flavor, is delicious.”
