Next Saturday, July 16th, 2022 at 7:30pm, Los Toneles restaurant (Basilio Badillo 180, Emiliano Zapata) will host an extraordinary event that brings together seven of the best female chefs in Puerto Vallarta, who will be offering a dinner with the aim of raising funds for CANICA Puerto Vallarta.

“Ellas se Juntan” is an initiative led by Mexican chef Fabiola Meraz, co-owner and executive chef of Los Toneles, who had the idea of bringing together these outstanding women of our local gastronomy to give them greater visibility and present an exquisite seven-course menu.

The cost of the dinner is 1,900 MXN per person and the total of the profits will be donated to CANICA Puerto Vallarta, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping people and children with cancer.

“With these actions we want to demonstrate our talent as professional women making visible the impact that female chefs, sommeliers, mixologists and other experts have within the gastronomic industry”, shared Meraz.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep.”
