Zanaya Restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City Recognised For Preserving Nayarit Cuisine

December 28, 2016 Accolades No Comments Email Email

As part of the opening of the IV International Mexican Gastronomy Forum, Tonatiuh Cuevas, ZANAYA’s restaurant chef, received the Conservatorio de la Cultura Gastronómica prize, awarded to the new restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City for preserving and protecting Nayarit’s cuisine.

This prize was awarded for the first time three years ago to restaurants, chefs and those individuals supporting the promotion, preservation and revival of Mexican cuisine.

Previously, restaurants such as El Cardenal and Nicos in Mexico City had been recognised for these same activities. In this fourth edition of the forum restaurant ZANAYA was awarded this prize for its work to revive and promote Nayarit’s cuisine. Enrique de la Madrid, Tourism Minister, gave the prize to Chef Tonatiuh.

One of the aspects that was taken into consideration to award this prize was the fact that the chef has made relevant research on the Mexican Pacific coast and included in his menu some of Nayarit’s traditional dishes. Additionally, the grill was constructed under the standards of a traditional oven in Nayarit’s coasts, which supplements the experience of having authentic dishes. This recognition makes ZANAYA one of the best restaurants in town, offering a great variety of flavours, history and experiences that are transmitted through its dishes to all its guests.

The main purpose of the International Gastronomy Forum is to promote a significant platform where all individuals and factors involved in Mexican gastronomy exchange knowledge, experiences, information and, at the same time, interact with other relevant food and gastronomy concepts at a world level. It also helps reviving and promoting Mexican gastronomy, as indicated by UNESCO’s action plan. It establishes links with other gastronomies by the exchange of knowledge and a mutual food trade for the different actors at a domestic and international level. It has an influence in the health field fostering a food culture leading to good cooking practices recognised as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. To make Mexican cuisine an important item for sustainable development and tourism promotion in Mexico, along with the Gastronomical Policy promoted by the Mexican government.

Mexican cuisine will undoubtedly be now enriched by ZANAYA Restaurant.
