GASTRONOMIC NIGHT

Cordero a la Cruz

Tulum Treehouse
03.07.2022
18:00

A special gastronomic night hosted by our Executive Chef Gonzalo Cerrato includes an open-fire lamb roast on a metal cross in the Argentine style, “cordero a la cruz,” a community culinary tradition common in South America. Supplied by the family farm of our local production chef Osso, the lamb will be roasted on an open fire with whole-cooked vegetables in the middle of our jungle garden while guests gather around the pool. Beginning at 6pm, this special evening will also include a welcome sangria and plums in wine for dessert.

The cordero roast will be accompanied by live harp, guitar and cajon drum in the jarocho style native to the Mexican state of Veracruz. A folk musical genre mixing Spanish, indigenous and African influences, jarocho has its roots in the early colonization of the Mexican Carribean and is thought to date back as far as the 11th century.

Exhibition

Jason Kriegler Exhibition

Tulum Treehouse
26.03.2021 - 20.08.2021

Tulum Treehouse welcomes our new exhibiting artist, Merida-based textile painter Jason Kriegler. Drawing influence from traditional textile design, Jason incorporates abstraction to create contemporary works that blur the lines between painting and textile art. His pared-down paper embroidery paintings suggest organic, biological forms but can also be experienced purely as abstracted combinations of shapes, line and texture.

Despite their simplicity, they have a captivating quality that reveals the complexity of hand embroidering onto paper, enlivened by a sense of depth that only seems to grow with continued examination. The exhibition runs for six months.
