Tulum y más allá
Travel has always been one of my passions. I grew up traveling to Cozumel to dive, and taking family trips to Baja. Now as an adult I get the incredible opportunity to travel to Mexico for work, and I get to share it with the people I love. This current trip takes me to Tulum for a getaway with my beautiful fiancee Alison. We fell in love traveling around the world together, and this is our first trip away from our 4 1/2 year old son.
Tulum offers a chance to get hands on with the cuisine I cook everyday. A place titled as a place for foodies to start being foodies. While I am not crazy about that term, I am excited to travel to a place that has a rich culinary scene based around locality. Top tier chefs have made a home here, and there is a lot of focus on super local produce and traditional Mayan cooking.
In April I swap Alison for my brother Rustin, as I head on a culinary adventure with stops in Mexico City, Puebla and Merida.
It is never easy to leave work, even harder to leave my son, at least on this trip I get to be with my love.
