Since opening in November of 2003, El Arrayán has won the hearts and taste buds of Banderas Bay. "The entire team at El Arrayán aims to prepare the best traditional Mexican cuisine in Puerto Vallarta," exclaims Carmen Porras, owner of El Arrayán.
"Along with the creations of Chef Mariano Valdez, this young team's goal is to deliver the best quality food in the Bay. Guests have had a great time in past cooking classes and keep asking for more. By leading the Slow Food movement in Banderas Bay, spreading the education of taste and linking producers of excellent foods to consumers is a key goal for us and separates us from other cooking classes around the bay. These cooking classes have proven to be a perfect Slow Food activity."
