Health nuts traveling down to Punta Mita can indulge in Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita‘s latest culinary offering: vegan dining. Partnering up with celebrated vegan chef and healthy living educator Leslie Durso, the resort is introducing 25 plant-based offerings at three of its dining outlets, Aramara, Bahia by Richard Sandoval and Ketsi. The offerings will include everything from appetizers, soups and salads to entrees and desserts.

“Through our partnership with the talented Leslie Durso we are setting a new standard in healthy resort dining with elevated vegan offerings across our entire restaurant portfolio,” says John O’Sullivan, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita. “Working alongside our team of chefs, Durso has created plant-based dishes that are both nourishing and delicious, infused with flavours and ingredients authentic to the paradise destination of Punta Mita.”

A globally recognised chef and healthy living educator, Durso is known for creating cuisine that reflects a fresh plant-based movement and refuses to compromise style for sustainability. She has worked as a private chef for New York socialites, catered to the Hollywood elite and appeared on national television networks including Food Network and CBS. An avid world traveller, Durso has immersed herself in some of the most inspired kitchens in the world, from Thailand to Peru to Italy, and boasts a unique ability to create vegan dishes that are familiar, yet strikingly creative and different.
