Chef Rodolfo Guzman of Borago - Santiago, Chile

Chef Rodolfo Guzmán returned from Spain’s top kitchens to his native Chile to open Boragó in Santiago. And in the process, the pioneering chef changed the face of Chilean fine dining. Guzmán travels the country to seek out native ingredients and elevates traditional product with avant-garde technique. His plates are restrained and naturalistic masterpieces. His short ribs look like chunks of soil. Potato purée takes the form of stones, and shrimp dangle from a bonsai tree. And Guzmán’s texturally-dazzling desserts take it to the next level of whimsy. A simple dish of violet ice cream and Chilean maqui berry nougat is textures of purple on a plate, bursting with flavor and exciting the palate with unexpected mouthfeel.
