The Tierra Hotel chefs held a flavorful summit full of stories and innovation. The leaders of the Tierra Atacama, Tierra Chiloé and Tierra Patagonia kitchens met in a collaborative atmosphere to define the distinctive culinary seal they would like to put on each destination.

Corporate chef Martin Molteni led the Tierra Hotels chefs and sous chefs in a variety of activities as they shared their knowledge while living together for six days in a house in eastern Santiago.

“This culinary summit earned the nickname ‘Big Brother’ among participants. It was a place for us to immerse ourselves and limit distractions, to delve into our customs and traditions, and to consider different flavors, aromas and ingredients. It’s like writing new stories,” says Martín Molteni, adding that “territories, products, traditions and producers were recognized and identified to allow each chef to consider their hotel destination from their own perspective and knowledge.”
