Your adventure will begin before the pop-up, as you come driving to the countryside, you will notice the difference in fresh air and awesome vibes while leaving the city behind. The best part? Cayey is just 50 mins away from San Juan! As soon as you get into El Pretexto, we will welcome you with a nice drink and amazing Hors d’Ouvre. You will meet other people, especially locals, that will share a long presidential table with you. Also, you can watch the chefs creating their magic in different fires. Once everyone is ready, we all seat at the same time to begin the feast. This will be a family style dinner with four or five plates being served at the center. Carefully selected wines by our Sommelier will go your way as well. During dinner you will experience an amazing sunset followed by a beautiful night setting with a cool breeze. This is a very unique experience that showcases the very best of the Puerto Rican gastronomy as well as the unrivaled Puerto Rico’s countryside. This experience is designed for adults only (18+) and all the guests are mostly locals with great vibes to share our Island knowledge with you.
I’m the founder and owner of El Pretexto, a Culinary Farm Lodge located in Cayey, Puerto Rico. I’ve been a food lover since I was born and is with this project that we celebrate food all the way from the farm to the plate. Once a month, we come up with a pop-up with an invited top Chef that prepares a unique dinning experience in our beautiful deck surrounded by our farm and the amazing views of the mountains all the way to the south coast. I have been hosting dinners since forever but especially at El Pretexto, one year and a half now. My background is on Marketing and Media but I made a radical career change three years ago to work with my passion: food. All the way from agroecological and sustainable production to enjoying it with friends and nice people.
Each event has a unique menu, but all the ingredients will be as fresh and local as possible.
Carefully paired wines for the dinner. Filtered house water will be served as well.
El Pretexto is a Bed and Breakfast nestled in the countryside mountains of Cayey at the community of Cercadillo. It's also my house that I chose to share with guests and visitors. We have a beautiful big wooden deck surrounded by trees and an awe-inspiring view all the way to the South coast.
最多可有10位年满18周岁的参与者参加。 Guests should be comfortable to seat along with other people at the same table. Also you should know that we own a very lovely dog: Pepe.
