Sabor a Cabo Food Festival has something for all tastes!
by Chris Sands
Tastes buds are already tingling for the 7th annual Sabor a Cabo, or Flavor of Cabo, the food and wine festival organized by CANIRAC, Los Cabos’ restaurant association. The festival itself is slated for December 1st, but there will be a weeklong run-up of food and wine related events scheduled from November 25 -30. This year’s version of the annual culinary extravaganza is being hosted by Club Campestre, a Grupo Questro managed golf course in San Jose del Cabo, and will feature food from the area’s best restaurants, wines from Mexico’s premier growing areas, live music, a silent auction, and fireworks, with a portion of the proceeds donated to local fire fighters.
The foodie festivities kick-off on Sunday, November 25th with “An Afternoon at Rancho Parralito,” a food tasting showcasing regional specialties, followed by five days of cooking classes from some of the area’s most celebrated chefs. Classes will be held from Monday, November 26th, through Friday, November 30th, and will be hosted by local restaurants. Participants include San Jose standouts Drew Deckman of Deckman’s at Havana, and Tadd Chapman of Don Sanchez; and Cabo San Lucas top chefs Jesus Castro Valle of Edith’s and The Office, Edgar Roman of Mi Casa, Carlos Bonilla of Casa Dorada’s 12 Tribes, Javier Barrera of Senor Sweets, Emanuele Olivero of DOC Wine Bar, and Denis Gabriel of Dennis Catering. Sushi master Angel Carbajal will show off his knife skills at Nick San‘s Las Tiendas de Palmilla location.
The main event, which in previous years has attracted as many as 4,000 participants, will be highlighted by culinary treasures from Los Cabos’ premier fine dining establishments, as well as benchmark wines from Mexico’s four great wine valleys: Valle de Parras, Valle de Santo Tomas, Valle de Ojos Negros, and of course, Valle de Guadalupe. The event will also feature live Latin music courtesy of Los Pulpos en su Tinto. Club Campestre, a Jack Nicklaus designed course known for its rugged beauty and challenging greens, will host the fun-filled evening. It is one of three area courses managed by event sponsor Grupo Questro – Cabo Real and Puerto Los Cabos are the others – and was chosen for its easy accessibility, security, and parking facilities.
