New Vegan Tasting Menus Available at Velas Resort


Vegan travellers can now indulge further at Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit in Nayarit, Mexico, with new curated tasting menus thanks to a collaboration with Mexico’s leading vegan chef Miguel Batista, co-founder and executive chef of Vegan Planet.

Substituting new vegan-friendly ingredients and new cooking techniques, Batista has produced entirely original vegan tasting menus at its three AAA Four Diamond restaurants serving French, Italian and Mexican gourmet cuisine and all-day dining option. Culinary travellers can enjoy the specialty dishes at any time of day or night by the property’s 24-hour in-suite dining services.

Dedicated menus at each restaurant feature four to five adapted traditional dishes of French, Italian and Mexican cuisine, as well as international favourites and comfort food for the specialty diet. Options includes a vegan pizza melt made with cashews, tapioca and sunflower seeds. Committed to serving nutritious meals with sufficient protein, all dishes created at the property are free of processed foods and are made with healthy cooking oils and techniques.

Soon to come are pressed juices and shots of ginger, turmeric and cayenne, which are known for giving health benefits and helping the immune system. The new culinary offerings come on the heels of the property’s first annual multi-generational Wellness Week, which featured top chefs, vegan menus, culinary workshops, fitness activities and spa offerings. Wellness Week will be repeated this year in the fall.
