Paella & Wine

Paella & Wine

A little history of Spanish Paella. It originates from a region of Spain called Valencia, which is in eastern Spain. These days, paella can be found in most Western countries, from the Americas to Europe, and it is especially popular in Spain. The recipe has expanded over the years, and now many different varieties of paella are passed off as authentic. The most commonly accepted story of paella’s origins is that servants would take the leftovers from Moorish royal banquets and cook it up over open fires into delicious dishes they would take home to their families. The word “paella” may come from the Arab word “baqiyah”, which means “leftovers”. However, another speculation is that the word “paella” is derived from a Latin word “patella”, which was a flat plate used for religious offerings made to gods. One thing we know for sure is that paella gained popularity in the mid-nineteen hundreds when paella became a popular dish served to laborers. The workers would gather midday, combine leftovers with rice, and cook over an open …

Father’s Day at Villa Del Palmar

What could be better than celebrating Father’s Day with your family in paradise! Here are some ideas about things to do in Cancun for Father’s Day. Breakfast in Bed It is somewhat traditional for the spouse or children to cook breakfast for Dad on Father’s day at home, sometimes even bringing him breakfast in bed. Well, when you are staying at a luxury resort, it’s easy to duplicate this time honored tradition without even lifting a finger! Room service is one of the best things about staying in a resort hotel. Just call down to room service and ask them to bring Dad’s favorite breakfast meal to the room. Enjoy a nice breakfast as a family together in your room, and don’t even worry about doing the dishes! Hit the Beach For a relaxing day in the sand and sun, simply head down to Villa del Palmar’s beach, order a cocktail, and chill.

The vistas of the shining sea that goes for miles and city lights at night make this rooftop pool one of the most talked about (and Instagrammed!) pools in all the world.

The Art of Ceviche, Simply Great

Art has many forms of expression and one of them is undoubtedly food. In this edition of our monthly newsletter, Villa del Palmar Cancún and its culinary team present “El Arte del Ceviche”, a performance in honor of a dish typical of Latin American cuisine. Ceviche has different stories regarding its origin. Some sources say that it is a dish that migrated from Polynesia to Latin America. Some historians of gastronomy confirm that it is a dish that arrived during the colonization of the Spaniards while others say it is a dish that the English fishermen used to prepare. However, the most famous version is that the cradle of ceviche flourished in Ancient Peru, where this succulent dish is considered a part of Cultural Heritage. Ceviche is eaten in many parts of Mexico as a snack or a starter, and in each region it has a different preparation method, with a high versatility of ingredients and above all with fish or seafood of very high quality and freshness. During the month of May you can …

Sushi at Palmita

Sushi at Palmita

Sushi is perhaps one of Japan’s most internationally known traditional dishes. Sushi is a dish of Japanese origin based on rice and fish, which is generally accompanied with sesame, depending on the tastes it can be raw or smoked, marinated with rice vinegar, sugar, salt and other ingredients, such as vegetables, fish or seafood. Sushi is usually prepared in small portions, about the size of a bite, and can take various forms. Fish and rice rolled in sheets of nori seaweed are called a maki (“roll”). Nigiri is a rice ball covered by a piece of fish. Sushi has gained popularity outside of Japan due in part to the migrations of its inhabitants to other countries. Sushi is a dish that is preferred by many people around the world today. Sushi comes in a wide variety of types and preparations. Our Deli offers exquisite sushi rolls of your choice, to satisfy your afternoon sushi craving. You may also ask for sushi to go! The sushi service is from Monday to Sunday any time after 12pm. …
