The Chef Festival

El Festival del ChefThe Patagonian Chef Festival is a cultural expression event based on the flavors of Patagonia. The monkey puzzle tree, locally known as "pehuén" or "araucaria araucana" and its ancient fruit -the pine nut- have shaped and honored our deepest cultural roots. The Mapuche culture and their food is the best proof of that. The purpose of this celebration is to rescue our identity, our flavors, our natural products, our fire in a festival for palates and for good taste. The mixture of recipes, traditions, cooking treasures, values of our people are at display to make the audience rejoice within a natural environment second to none.
