Fresh back from the holidays and my first trip of the new year, I’ve started contributing to Oyster.com and published my first piece just before the new year. It’s on Mexico City and about things you should know about the city that you might’ve not before. I was very surprised by Mexico City, especially by how massive it was and how many things there was to do there. Below are a few things I liked while I was there pulled from my article: Read the rest of this entry
It’s funny, growing up I never liked a lot of the dishes from my Peruvian heritage. Now, whenever it’s offered I can’t get enough. I grew up with a dislike of fish, so the delicious seafood driven dishes the make up like half of Peru’s cuisine offerings never touched my lips until I reached adulthood.
Last month I wrote an article on different Peruvian dishes to know for Thrillist, and happy to share my favorites from the bunch below that are now my go-tos: Read the rest of this entry
While the 2015 Snowpocalypse covers the northeast, I look back at winter wonderland of my time in the mountains of Park City, Utah. While it is currently filled with the Sundance Film Festival goers, I got to experience a taste of mountain life with the luxurious St. Regis Deer Valley earlier this month during its fifth anniversary.

From my Texas road trip with Best Western, one of my favorite things we did was a food tour of Austin through its colorful and cheeky (and tasty) food trucks. For the outdoorsy dinner crawl in the Texas heat (which since it was over 90 degrees F was luckily more of a bus tour), I sported an ikat pattern top from Territory Ahead, denim shorts I made, and UGG’s lightweight Cantrell suede chukka boot style.

Personal and professional travels have brought me to various parts of the U.S. and over international waters, but Texas wasn’t in my travel goals this year. Then when Best Western invited me on a road trip through The Lone Star State to experience a few of their properties and attend the National Association of Hispanic Journalists Convention, I thought there would be no better way to experience Texas and got onboard.
Fresh from Cancun, I had the pleasure in attending the third edition of the Cancún-Riviera Maya Wine & Food Festival. Over the course of four days across seven different resorts, attendees could partake in events such as the conference series (which featured renowned New York-based, French chef Daniel Boulud who talked about his inspiring career path and about the future of cuisine), tastings of wine and spirits from California, Argentina and of course Mexico, and countless delicious and beautifully displayed bites from all over the world to fill everyone’s culinary curiosity.
The Gourmet Tasting Village at Moon Palace was the place to be for two days of Mexican cuisine from local restaurants (such as La Casa del Agua, Cocina de Autor and Alquimia), resorts (such as Palace Resorts, Le Blanc, ME and Nizuc), the local culinary school (El Instituto Culinario de Cancún) and food and drink brands. While I couldn’t bring back the food with me (if only!), I was able to snap hundreds of photos. Get a food porn photo sampling below of the tasty goodies at this year’s CRM Wine & Food Festival:
