Mexican Independence Celebrations

Our recent trip to Christchurch to share in the Mexican Independence Celebrations was 'flat out' busy! A HUGE thanks to Julie Beadle and the team at Alva Rado's who hosted the event for what was a big crowd who enjoyed Traditional Mexican Music, Dance, Food and Beverages, aaahhhh Real 100% Agave Tequila, Salud!!

The Mexican snacks (Antojitos) that never seemed to stop coming, were an unbelievable fusion of flavour that we here in NZ just do not ever taste.

Fantastic to catch up with the Honourable (and beautiful) Leonora Rueda, Mexican Ambassador to NZ, and a real treat to meet Celebrity Chef, Mari Carmen Saenz, Ambassador of Mexican Food around the World and an introspective and hugely accomplished Chef in her own right, who has prepared her fantastic Mexican Cuisine for the likes of the President of Mexico and the King of Spain.

We look forward to receiving contact from Chef Saenz soon with some valuable contacts in Mexico!
