Thierry Blouet is the chef/owner of three restaurants, Café des Artistes, Café des Artistes Del Mar and Thierry Blouet Cocina de Autor, all located in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. His grandfather, Max Blouet, spent three decades as years as General Manager of the Hotel George V near Champs-Elyseés in Paris.
Born to French parents in 1964, Chef Blouet received his education in in France and Mexico and has been an Ambassador of French Gastronomy to Mexico for almost 30 years.
As a Director of “Chaine des Rotisseurs” in Puerto Vallarta, Chef Blouet is involved with several cultural events and culinary “fiestas” in Puerto Vallarta. Chef Blouet is also a member of the “Académie Culinaire de France”, an organization that brings together chefs from France, Mexico, Canada and the United States.
The classic “Confit Canard” is offered wrapped in maguey leaf and pasilla chili essence in a perfect fusion of French and Mexican cuisines. On his menus, you find a “Soft Shell Crab Taco” and “Lobster Ceviche” living harmoniously with “Foie Gras” and “Escargots.”
Thinking of Puerto Vallarta only as the giveaway trip on game shows may need to be re-examined.
