THE ANDES: INVITED TERRITORY

The Andes will be the stand-out invited territory in this year’s Andorra Taste. It will include chefs Rodolfo Guzmán from the Baragó restaurant, in Santiago de Chile (Chile); Samuel Ortega from the ShamuiCo Espai Gastronòmic restaurant (Ecuador) and Aníbal Criollo from the Naturalia en la Cocha restaurant, Nariño (Colombia), who are renowned for their high mountain cuisine.

Their experiences will show how they manage to work on traditionally prepared recipes with products from the area, grown in extreme terrain and climates. They highlight the tastes of the past, but give them a fabulously modern touch, at a height of more than 2500 m. Quite the challenge!

ANDORRA TASTE AWARD

Andorra Taste will close with a grand finale, and the presentation of the Andorra Taste Award. It is awarded to the renowned French chef Michel Bras, who has 2 Michelin stars. This chef is receiving this award after an impeccable career leading his restaurant, Le Suquet, which is located in Laguiole (Aubrac). Originally from Aveyron (France), and self taught, Bras’s designs and platings have been some of the most imitated and admired by chefs from all over the world. A pioneer in introducing wild plants and edible flowers into his cooking, some of his dishes are icons of haute cuisine.
