Hilton Prague Hotel has announced it will host a Mexican Food Festival from Sept. 9-19 in cooperation with the Mexican Embassy in the Czech Republic. H.E. José Luis Bernal, ambassador of Mexico in the Czech Republic, will officially inaugurate the festival.
Carlos Ozuna Recinos, sous chef at Hilton Cancun Golf & Spa Resort, will be flown to the Czech Republic by Aeromexico, one of Mexico’s most recognized airlines, especially for this occasion. He will be Hilton Prague Hotel's guest chef during this event and will prepare authentic Mexican cuisine. During the festival, guests will have an opportunity to taste traditional Mexican dishes and savour typical Mexican flavours.
Lunch and dinner buffets will be served at Hilton Prague Hotel’s Café Bistro. The restaurant will be decorated with Mexican handicrafts, pieces of art and photographs from a private collection selected to enhance the overall experience. Visitors also will be able to enjoy Herradura Tequila and El Jimador Tequila and taste tequila-based dishes, such as sea food cocktail with essence of tequila and coriander seeds; beef medallions in tequila and chile chipotle sauce; and tequila crème brulèe.
H.E. José Luis Bernal, ambassador of Mexico in the Czech Republic, said: “We are really excited about our involvement in the Festival as 2010 is a special year for all Mexicans. It is the year of commemoration of the bicentennial of the Mexican Independence movement and the centennial of the Mexican Revolution with an extensive program of events. These bicentennial and centennial celebrations are occasions to share with all our friends a taste of the rich Mexican heritage. Let the 2010 festivities bring us a new understanding of our past and inspiration for the future. Join us!"
“It is with great honour that I share the taste of Mexico with a Prague audience,” said Chef Carlos Ozuna. "I am very happy to be part of the celebration and to be able to present traditional Mexican flavours, prepared with the authentic spices of our region."
The festival is organized in cooperation with the following partners: Aeromexico, Nuevo Progresso, Brown-Forman and Tereza Vágnerová.
The Mexican Food Festival will be held from Sept. 9-19 at the Café Bistro restaurant. Lunch will be served from noon to 3 p.m. and dinner will be served from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Price per person is 990 CZK and includes an unlimited selection from the buffet.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
