12/19 KARISMA HOTELS & RESORTS, AZUL SENSATORI, LE CHIQUE, JONATHAN GOMEZ LUNA, PETRUS COENDERS, SABRINA FILATOW

JOIN MICHAEL JORDAN AS HE BROADCAST LIVE FROM THE AZUL SENSATORI MEXICO, BY KARISMA

Karisma Hotels & Resorts is a collection of award-winning luxury hotel collection with properties throughout the Riviera Maya, Mexico and Negril, Jamaica.



If it’s true that the first bite is with the eyes, Le Chique at Azul Sensatori is a feast in every sense. From the moment you arrive, the seductive décor offers a visceral taste of what’s to come – an experiential, multi-sensory dining adventure that will challenge any notions of how fine cuisine should look, feel and taste. To call Le Chique part restaurant, part house of mirrors isn’t far fetched. This is modernist cuisine, where nothing is as it seems. Foods are deconstructed then reconstructed to resemble something else. Spheres are cocktails. Entrées masquerade as dessert. In fact, everything on Le Chique’s seasonal tasting menu was designed to puzzle, amuse and amaze you. Cuisine this inventive deserves to be put on a pedestal, which is precisely how it’s served – atop a pedestal, within a hollowed-out book, resting on a sling. All this by impresario waiters who seem to enjoy the spectacle as much as you do. Behind this pageantry is Chef Jonatán Gómez Luna and his talented culinary team, who’ve mastered the art and science of cooking to achieve astounding new flavors, textures and shapes. Add a focus on regional ingredients, sustainable growing practices and available wine pairings, and you have a dining experience that’s both a visual feast and culinary triumph.

PETRUS COENDERS, SOMMELIER

You might say Petrus Coenders was born to be a sommelier. With a name synonymous with some of the most revered Bordeaux wines in the world, and a father whose wine collection would command attention and admiration from virtually any wine aficionado, his awareness and appreciation for fine wine came at an early age. Fast-forward through the years and you’d find Petrus working tirelessly in the hospitality industry. It is these restaurants and bars that would ultimately lead him to the Hospitality and Gastronomic Management School at Leeuwarden. Here, in the northernmost reaches of the Netherlands, his knowledge and love of wine flourished, and the young boy who could barely reach the top shelf would soon be extolling the virtues of some of the world’s finest vintages. Today, three years after joining the team at Le Chique, this Certified Sommelier of the Court of Master Sommelier continues to dazzle Le Chique guests nightkAy with a resplendent marriage of food and wine. At the same time, Petrus Coenders travels the world to acquire remarkable vintages designed to complement Chef Jonatan Gomez Luna’s revered modernist cuisine. Cheers!
