One of my favourite events that I attended this summer was one involving
Canada Beef, Karisma Hotels in Mexico and Jackson Family Wines. It
was a fabulous event in the garden of Rouge Restaurant learning about this partnership, highlighting Canadian beef in Mexico and enhancing beef and wine pairing knowledge.
Launched in January 2014, Karisma Hotels & Resorts’ inaugural Canadian Beef Culinary Series, by Karisma, invites guests to relish the taste of Canada’s top culinary talent and best cuts of prime beef while enjoying a Gourmet Inclusive® vacation in Riviera Maya, Mexico that is as delicious as it is unforgettable.
We were spoiled with delicious creations by the talented chefs Michael
Allemeier and Paul Rogalski.
The dishes were stunning to look at and
even better in my belly. Here’s a look at what we tried:
Beef Tataki with Vegetable Yuzu Salad
Oxtail broth, Roasted Garlic and Bone Marrow Pearls
Top Sirloin with Watermelon, Feta and Lime
Smoked Brisket Sticky Buns
Manhattan Strip with tortilla Fried Avocado
Beef Cheek Arancini, Blue Cheese Cream
The evening included a seminar by Jackson Family Wines and how different wines paired with different beef.
The best part of the night was a giveaway – a week’s stay at Karisma
Hotels in the Mayan Riviera, enjoying their gourmet inclusive experience. I was ecstatic
when I won!! We are so looking forward to a relaxing getaway and
delicious food. Less than two months away and the countdown has begun!
