2012 May Outing to Adjuntas 

 

Our outing, Saturday, May 21, was an unqualified success. The highlights of the event were a special eight-course (actually nine) dinner personally prepared by Chef Ventura Vivoni at the historic Hacienda Luz de Luna on Saturday. The dinner began with a welcome sangria, a walking tour of the hacienda (which grows coffee and fruit and produces artesanal citrus jams, jellies and other products) and then a exquisite tasting menu on the veranda of the 1887 casa grande. Everyone agreed that the food was among the best we have enjoyed in recent years!

Skalleagues and their families and friends stayed at Hacienda Luis or Parador Villas de Sotomayor. Hacienda (or Casa) Luis is a charming lakeside bed and breakfast in Castañer and Villas de Sotomayor is a friendly parador that features horseback riding in Adjuntas.


All in in all it was a wonderful weekend with good friends, good weather, and good food in an amazing area.
