[Mexico: Yucatan] The Best Chef Awards 2023

Last month, I made my way to Yucatán in Mexico for events of  The Best Chef Awards 2023 ! This is my second time attending the festivities and on the first day, we heard from a panel of speakers on the topic of  “ORIGINS & FUTURE” at  the beautiful mansion museum El Pinar in Merida . Speakers included Junghyun Park of Atomix, Rodolfo Guzman of Borago, Jorge Vallejo of Quintonil, Manu Buffara of Manu Restaurante, Mariana Poo of Traspatio Maya, and Wilson Alonzo of Ya'axche . The discussion on traditions and history was made all the more livelier during the Q&A session with comments from the legendary Ferran Adria of elBulli !
