The Experience

One of the world’s most acclaimed chefs, Mads Refslund, will celebrate the season of gratitude in Cabo. Co-founder of Copenhagen’s Noma, four times named the world’s best restaurant, Chef Mads will draw on land and sea to create a gastronomic event at Esperanza. Fanatically dedicated to terroir and to food that is sourced locally and sustainably, he’ll make use of the bounty of the Sea of Cortez and the many organic farms in and around Los Cabos. The result: a culinary experience that could only happen in Baja California.
