When Villa La Estancia Riviera Nayarit debuted its Cuisine of the Sun International Food & Wine Festival in 2016, attendees displayed their support for “seconds.”

The AAA Four Diamond beachfront resort’s general manager, Oliver Coupat, notes that he was overwhelmed by the outstanding performances and energetic demonstrations put on by the festival’s star-studded line up. “The supreme talents of each of the chefs, sommeliers and mixologists made the five-day Cuisine of the Sun Festival a true success. And we are genuinely grateful for each of their contributions,” says Coupat. “We are so happy to have been able to share it with our friends and valued guests.”

Villa La Estancia will continue to elevate the Vallarta region’s stellar culinary resume with an encore performance slated for April 26-29. Attesting to its appeal are not only repeat performances by many of 2016’s participants, but a roster seasoned with newbies as well.

Cuisine of the Sun will showcase the talents, dishes and libations of culinary gurus from the United States and Latin America via a variety of entertaining activities designed to engage foodies from the appetizer through dessert.

Whether soaking in the expertise of stellar chefs and sommeliers during workshops, savoring flavors while attending an elegant dinner alongside famous foodies or participating in the SugarFoods-sponsored Chopped Challenge, Coupat assures that it should be a toothsome fare affair.

“Curated for the second time by Food Network celebrity chef and USFOODS culinary specialist, Penny Davidi, Cuisine of the Sun will be bringing together some of the biggest names in the food and wine industry,” says Coupat.
