We are honoured to announce the dinner series "Chilean Bistronomy" with chef Carolina Bazán on the 19, 20, 21 April 2018. Her restaurant, Ambrosia, is no. 37 in Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants and Carolina is the winner of the One to Watch Award. She is currently one of Chile's most acclaimed chefs and 1 of the only 5 female chefs to make San Pellegrino's list of Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants.
Ambrosia is often describe as a modern Chilean restaurant with a french accent, a market-to-table experience, with a pinch of David Chang's decadent influence. Santiago's fine dining restaurant scene has been evolving over the last few years and is now focusing on long-neglected traditional ingredients presented in a modern way. Carolina is one of the leaders behind this movement and certainly the only woman chef to walk forth with the flag.
Carolina worked in her family's restaurant, Ambrosia, for several years. During those she travelled to Peru and Brazil to deepen her culinary education. In 2011, when she turned 30, Carolina decided to spend some time in Paris, start from zero working as an intern to learn more skills. She worked under Gregory Marchand at his renowned bistro, Frenchie, from which Ambrosia Bistro takes much inspiration.
Coming back to Santiago, Chile, Carolina decided to refurbish and relocate her family's restaurant. With her partner in restaurant and in life, Rosario Onetto, both opened the newer Ambrosia Bistro. Their restaurant is now one of the main spots for creative dining. The ever-changing menu is a great expression of Chile's landscape, climate and coastline. It is constantly showcasing fresh Chilean products.
