What you'll learn

Chef Álvaro Clavijo’s vision is to make local ingredients shine and apply techniques that heighten their value.

You will review the basics of French cuisine such as gastrique, confit and bernesa, but with a creative twist thanks to the use of ingredients such as culonas ants and tucupi. We will also take some inspiration from other countries, for example, Italian gremolata and Asian hoisin.

You will learn how to conquer your guests’ palates with the perfect combination of explosive flavors and textures.

You will use modern techniques such as spherification, fermentations, siphon foam, and ingredients like inulin and flavored oils.
