Valle de Guadalupe April 30th, 2014- The culinary landscape of Valle de Guadalupe is about to evolve with Chef Flor Franco as leader of culinary matters at Encuentro Guadalupe Antiresort™.
“Encuentro means Encounter, and my vision for Encuentro Guadalupe is a place where guests can encounter the nature of Baja with all their senses”, Franco explains. “I plan to build an experience, not just another restaurant. We will take ‘local’ and ‘sustainable’ to their highest levels: growing our own produce, raising our own animals, pressing our olives, making our own cheese. Local artisans will make our plates, furniture, and artwork. Encuentro is already a place to encounter the natural surroundings that make this valley so special, now it will also be a place to taste and learn about its deliciousness.”

Chef Franco will revamp the menus at the iconic Resguardo Kitchen for guests of the Antiresort, and will open for diners visiting Valle de Guadalupe by reservation only at dusk. in adition Flor will open an aditional kitchen at the Vinícola Encuentro, complementing Chefs Vasilisa Malinka and Alfredo Acosta’s Cocina Origen.
Soft opening for the new menus will begin this June right before the summer season.
