Yucatán is set to host the second season of Gastro Destino México, a streaming production highlighting the richness of Mexico’s cuisine. 

The eight chefs, all Yucatecan, who will be participating in the show’s second season, were presented at a press conference held at Mérida’s Hyatt Regency hotel. 

The second season of the show will be made up of eight episodes, viewable on YouTube, each centering on a specific region or aspect of Mexico’s varied cuisine. 

All episodes of the first season of the show are streamable on the series’ YouTube channel

The competing chefs include Sara Arnaud of the restaurant Tatemar, David Reyes of the Mérida Hyatt Regency, Luis Ronzón of the restaurant Ixi’im in Hacienda Chablé and Maycoll Calderón de Cuna of the Wayam hotel.

“The show’s target audiences include foodies and people who love to travel and experience enriching culinary experiences,” said the show’s director, Damián Movalli.

Gastro Destino México joins a series of several other food-centric series filming in Yucatán over the past few years.

Other notable productions include the 2021 series, “Once Upon a Bite,” which looks at food from a Chinese perspective and documents the culinary skills of the Chab family of Tekax. 

Last year the Netflix documentary series “Chef’s Table” made its way to Yaxunah to film traditional cook Rosalía Chay Chuc as she demonstrated how to prepare Yucatán’s most famous dish, cochinita pibil. 
Samin Nosrat’s Netflix series “Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat” also included Yucatán in 2018 to witness the power of acid in cooking.
