A few examples of Chef Casiano‘s signature “Spontaneous” dishes include:
Chef Casiano Reyes was born in Oaxaca, the cradle of cuisine in Mexico and the source of his inspiration. His first encounter with the culinary world was at the age of 14 when he worked in the kitchen of a small, local restaurant, and his love of food began. In 1992, he completed a Food and Beverage Degree at Universidad Panamericana in Mexico City. In 1997, he became part of the esteemed Las Ventanas al Paraiso team as Executive Sous Chef, where he stayed five years fine-tuning his trade and obtaining great recognition among the hospitality and culinary industry including a “Manager of the Year” award.
Given his vast experience, he was invited to Las Vegas for the opening of several restaurants including Restaurant Anasazi of Santa Fe in Hotel Aladdin and the restaurant Bohemias Tapas Bar, which boasted a Latin concept. In 2003, he decided to open his own business, El Itakate, a catering service that brings the best Chef Casiano has to offer to private villas, apartments or any location.
Whether it is a dinner for two or an event for more than 1,000 people, El Itakate offers a next level culinary experience. And in 2012, Casiano had the honor to serve all the Presidents and Heads of State at the G20 Forum celebrated in Los Cabos. Casiano felt that 2005 was the perfect time for a new project. He didn’t want to be constrained by ingredients not in their prime condition or quality, so he coined and created Spontaneous Cuisine, an "ultimate culinary trip throughout different regions of Mexico” letting local available ingredients guide his culinary creations.
Chef Casiano’s Spontaneous Cuisine at his namesake restaurants in Los Cabos and Riviera Nayarit, has been wowing food aficionados and creating a lot of buzz within the dining community. Grand Miramar is thrilled that he is bringing his distinctive culinary talents to resort guests, sharing an authentic Mexican gastronomic experience.
