A Tasty Tribute to Mothers in Puerto Vallarta
While not limited to Mother’s Day, the newly renovated Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa offers a special ‘Jalisco at your Table' culinary experience which draws much of its influences from the region’s matriarchs. A kitchen full of chefs at the resort local to Jalisco have curated a seven-course menu inspired by meals from their childhood and time spent in their mothers' and abuelas' kitchens. Think tamales alongside a warm cup of atole, zarandeado fish - a traditional wood-fired beach snack served on a stick-, creamy, roasted corn soup and mmm, birria tacos. This culinary homage to childhood memories, moms and more is an authentic and delicious add on for all travelers who appreciate the opportunity to take a bite out of the local culture. Jalisco at your Table is available by request only and tastes even better when coupled with a tequila tasting with the resort's own tequila sommelier.
