Jason Wu wrote WWD an extensive postcard about his recent vacation in Montevideo, Uruguay. He stayed at the Estancia Vik Jose Ignacio resort with his partner Gustavo Rangel.
The resort's executive chef, Marcelo, threw us a welcome barbecue, where we were joined by the hotel's other guests--and foodie that I am, I offered to help cook. We whipped up a 20-person feast of short ribs, lamb, provolone-stuffed peppers, homemade salsa and pistachio-topped rice pudding. All the vegetables and herbs we served were hand-picked from their backyard--talk about eating fresh!
He also went horseback riding for the first time, confessing, "I was nervous to climb into the saddle--but once I got the hang of it, it was surprisingly easy!"
