Ecuador's gastronomic culture is a rich blend of regions, ingredients, and histories. Since pre-Columbian times, the exchange of grains, fruits and vegetables between the Amazon, the Andes, and the coast has shaped its cuisine immeasurably. Combined with further Spanish influences, the result is a colourful and delicious mix that sets tastebuds alight.
Chef Alejandro Chamorro, formerly trained by Gastón Acurio, offers a personal cooking class at Nuema Restaurant. Specialising in main dishes, Alejandro works alongside pastry chef Piedad Salazar crafting exquisite courses on both the sweet and savoury spectrum. As a founding member of Panela, a collective championing local ingredients, Chamorro has helped position Nuema among the top 50 restaurants in Latin America.
