Michel Mustière, Culinary Director for Velas Resorts, “Secret” Turkey Recipe

Still no Thanksgiving plans? How about kicking off the holiday season at the “Beyond All-Inclusive, Beyond All-Compare” Velas Resorts in Los Cabos, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit in Mexico? On the menu is the winning secret turkey recipe of Chef Michel Mustière, Culinary Director for Velas Resorts. Besides dinner with all of the special holiday dishes including sweet potato puree and pumpkin pie, guests will enjoy their holiday with luxurious suite accommodations and more in these luxury all-inclusive resorts.
For Chef Michel Mustière, Culinary Director for Velas Resorts, perfecting the turkey recipe required a lot of experimentation, patience and dedication. For over 9 years, he has worked on the prized holiday turkey, the cooking of which poses a complicated challenge - a juicy center and delicate flavor with a bird quite large. That special taste that Chef Michel Mustière has achieved is shared with each of the Velas Resorts, but doesn’t go beyond there (he’s keeping it a secret, exclusive to the hotel group). Those who have managed to taste the secret recipe from Mustière, a member of the prestigious Culinary Academy of France, give it the highest ever marks.
