Saborea Puerto Rico 2019

SAVE THE DATE! Saborea 2020 will be held on April 2-5, 2020!

Food, glorious food … Drinks … Cooking technique & recipe demonstrations by famous local & international chefs … Live entertainment … All in a glorious ocean-front setting.

That is what you will experience at the 12th annual Saborea Puerto Rico "A Culinary Extravaganza".

It will be held April 4-7, 2019. The big event on the weekend is at the Balneario de Carolina Ventana al Mar . We have gone for the past couple of years, and we’ve really enjoyed ourselves. So you know that we will be there again this year!

Saborea Puerto Rico

What to Expect

On the weekend, your all-inclusive pass to the events will give you the opportunity to taste some of the yummiest food that local restaurant chefs have to offer. Each day, chefs from local restaurants flaunt their stuff, along with a number of other local-food-brand sponsors.

The chefs sometimes make things from their regular menu, or sometimes they create something special just for this day. There is also a wide range of rums (of course, thanks to the Rums of Puerto Rico), wines, beer, and other liquors to taste. And throughout the event there is lots of music and on Sunday, a “grilled cheese” competition with many local and international celebrities.

This is an adults-only experience.

Saborea Puerto Rico

Our Experience in the Past

We arrived at a little early, which worked out for us since we were able to get good parking. Once they opened, they immediately started giving us free stuff (like wine glasses, product samples, other goodies and a bag to carry it all).

Once the event opens, we went from table to table, eating and drinking our way through the whole tent. I think we tried just about everything, and we were stuffed!

It got more crowded as the day progressed, so there were lines to get to the tables. But that wasn’t all bad — it gave us time to eat & drink what we already had in our hands and chat with the other people in line. For 2018, they expect a much smaller crowd.

When we needed to take a breather, we watched the cooking demonstrations, or went outside to watch some of the entertainment (music and other things).

Throughout the day, representatives from a number of companies were walking around giving out free samples of their products.

All in all, we had a blast both days, and probably gained 5 pounds that weekend!
