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.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is a platform that allows us to reach the kind of market that we’re looking for. I think that, since its beginnings, 30 years ago, it has been the best publication of the destination. There’s no doubt that part of our success is for the advertising that we have in the magazine.”

“Vallarta Lifestyles is very helpful for someone who arrives for the first time to the destination, because through its content one can discover really nice places to visit. Besides, it is a guide for us as residents, because we know from a good source the new things we can do. People take the magazine and in one place they find hotels, restaurants, galleries, real estate and other featured services.”
