But, hey! who am I to judge? Better stop before I bruise some overinflated ego.
Happily decided to be present with a little stand ...the only caveat was : only vegetarian food. Quite a surprise and a challenge for yours truly who "likes his vegetables with the peel on and his animals whole" LOL.
This is what we agreed on :
* Roasted garlic, toasted almonds,honey,cranberries, chickpeas pate'/marinated cherry tomato/ multi grain sourdough
*Seared farmers' queso fresco/mango chutney/baked plantain
*Smokey eggplant caviar/dill + garlic yogurt/capsicum + fennel coulis/sprouted seeds + coconut+corn blini
presented as a trio of amuse gueules an a cute leaf shape white plate.
Here's a few pics that my new friend Alejandra, a very talented Argentinian artist from La Paz (http://www.alejandramorante.com ), took for me, since there were no pics whatsoever taken by the event staff and/or organizers.
I met some interesting people,
some definitively peculiar persons and made a few new friends.
Since the whole vegetarian theme was quite of an unsuspected challenge I did not follow any recipe and went instead by pure inspiration, instinct and taste and I haven't organized my cooking and tasting notes yet.
I will post recipes of the dishes as soon as possible.
Ciao from Los Cabos,
Emilio : )
