Mejia’s table

May 27, 2014 | By |

Executive Chef, José Maria Mejia explains how he's bringing a new farm-to-table philosophy to the fine dining experience at Hyatt Zilara Cancun.

Farm-to-table sounds great, but how does it actually work?

We work with local farmers to provide our guests with menus featuring the freshest, seasonal ingredients from the surrounding area.

How will guests know they are eating fresh, local products?

Our chefs and service staff visit the local fishermen, farms and providers regularly and return to the resort to share their experiences with our guests. You'll also enjoy improved texture and flavour since everything is so fresh.

What's the most important lesson you've learned setting up this program?

By focusing on the simple kitchen basics, we can use natural products to restore and fuel the body.

What's the greatest advantage to the guests of sourcing locally?

Guests say they travel to explore and experience things they cannot do at home. By emphasizing the sounds, smells and tastes from the region, you can discover the local culture inside the resort.

Of all the restaurants you oversee, do you have a favourite?

Maria Marie, a Mexican fusion experience at Hyatt Zilara Cancun.

What about a favourite dish?

Cochinita pibil. It's a prehispanic Mayan dish of marinated pork in sour orange, annatto seeds and cooked in an underground charcoal pit.

You've been cooking since you were 16, what's the one thing you're most proud of?

The greatest pride that I have is that I make my living cooking and feeding people – it's not my job, but more a passion.
