An online kitchen space will share experiences and recommendations through Instagram Live. The first preparation will be in charge of the chef Eugenio Melo.
Within the framework of the National Day of Chilean Cuisine, a new version of “Saborea Chile” will be launched, a virtual gastronomic space where different national chefs will share traditional Chilean recipes and the best advice on how to prepare them.
The initiative, which begins this Wednesday, 15 April at 6 pm, is the first in a series of live transmissions where different gastronomy professionals will share recipes and interact with those who connect through the Instagram @MarcaChile account.
In relation to this initiative, the Undersecretary of Tourism, Monica Zalaquett, stated that “tourism and gastronomy are two elements that are intimately linked, reflecting our culture, our roots, our history and our identity. At a time when we are called upon to take care of ourselves and postpone our trips, Saborea Chile comes to bring the national gastronomy to every Chilean home”.
For her part, the executive director of Imagen de Chile, Constanza Cea, pointed out that “at times when the most important thing is to be responsible and stay at home, we want to invite the whole world to continue to prefer our country through our gastronomy. As Imagen de Chile we are taking advantage of technologies and that everyone is more connected, so that our country’s name continues to be on the radar of tourists, both national and international.
The first Instagram live will be in charge of national chef Eugenio Melo, who will share in the preparation of a shrimp chupe gratin with goat cheese, a recipe that is fully available at the APP Recetas de Chile along with 365 other preparations.
Sernatur’s national director, Andrea Wolleter, highlighted the importance of Saborea Chile at this time: “We know these are difficult days, but this health crisis has presented us with challenges that we must resolve with innovation. This is what this initiative aims to do, which is precisely to travel around our country through our senses, to love it now and be able to travel later and discover how wonderful Chile is. That is the invitation we are making: to stay at home today, so that tomorrow we can reactivate tourism together.
