According to Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine- From July 11 to 23, the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Riviera Maya resort will host a delectable culinary festival commemorating the French Revolution. The luxury retreat’s gourmet restaurant Piaf, an inspiring work of French classicism, welcomes New York City’s Madison Bistro chef and owner, Maître Cuisiner de France Claude Godard, on the occasion of this tribute to the venerable French culinary tradition.

This special prix fixe menu will include such delights as sautéed foie gras with artichoke mousseline and white truffle; hazelnut-butter roasted sea bass and a decadent chocolate dessert served with poached raspberries and caramel fudge. The tasting menu is available to all resort guests at no additional charge as part of the all-inclusive rate. For outside guests, dinner is $1,200 pesos (about $100) per person and $1,500 pesos (about $125) with wine pairings.
