Angelina Ramos, executive sous chef at the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Golf & Spa Resort in Los Cabos, lent her Mexican culinary expertise to The Westin Bund Center in Shanghai throughout the month of May. In an effort to help promote Mexico as a top vacation destination with an abundance of upscale dining experiences, Ramos journeyed to China to serve up some of Los Cabos’ favorite dishes.

Ramos worked with a number of culinary associates from The Westin Bund Center to execute daily lunch and dinner menus at Stage, one of three restaurants at The Westin Bund Center. At Prego, the hotel’s high-end, Italian cuisine-focused restaurant, she paired several savory dishes with tequila and wine. Ramos also taught afternoon cooking classes featuring specialty Mexican dishes to The Westin’s guests.

Aside from Ramos’ daily duties, she created tasty tacos for The Westin’s reoccurring Thursday festivities featuring Sol beer, a sponsor and supplier of The Westin Bund Center’s Mexico promotion. On Sundays, Ramos lead the hotel’s kitchen in producing fine Mexican cuisine during The Westin Bund Center’s famous Sunday brunch, which included a Mariachi band, handicrafts and other exciting features.

Along with the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Golf & Spa Resort’s support of Ramos’ venture, other sponsors and suppliers included the Consulate of Mexico in Shanghai, the Ministry of Culture, Aeromexico, La Costena, Mission (Gruma), Bimbo de Mexico, Sol beer, El Pato, Café Los Portales de VeraCruz and many more.
