Chef Spotlight: Dreams Puerto Aventuras

Chef Rafael

Dreams Puerto Aventuras Resort & Spa offers guests a wide variety of food selections as part of Unlimited-Luxury®. We want to introduce you to the man behind it all, our Executive Chef, Rafael.

Chef Rafael has been the Executive Chef at the resort for nearly two years. He is very talented in the kitchen and is always keeping up with the latest techniques to create dishes our guests love. He studied Culinary Arts at the University of the Caribbean and he has gained expertise to lead his food and beverage team.

In the kitchen Chef Rafael uses fresh produce to enhance the richness of the foods he prepares. He uses flavors from South America and Mexico in his cooking.

He uses both traditional and cutting edge culinary techniques and vacuum cooking is a technique that he prefers to use. Vacuumed, low temperature cooking is a procedure that preserves the tastes and nutrients. Rafael is ready to prepare your special lobster or romantic dinner.
