Try The World: A Taste Of CHILE


“I think in a couple of years, you’re going to see a lot of small, interesting, independent restaurants in Chile. Not with tablecloths, a more relaxed style. ‘Bistronomy’ There’s a lot of excitement. We want to do something with our gastronomy.” Chef Carolina Bazán of Ambrosia

Chile spans much of the Western coast of South America and boasts incredible geographic diversity, including endless beaches and mountain ranges, glaciers, and desserts. Chile’s cuisine is just as diverse as its geography. Thanks to its 2,000 miles of coastline, seafood features prominently in many dishes, as do local vegetables and meats… Nearly 90% of Chile’s population live in cities – such as the capital Santiago and its charming seaside neighbor Valparaíso – but local traditions and flavors are deeply connected to the country’s natural surroundings. Chile is one of top ten largest producers of wine in the world, and almost 50% of frozen berries consumed in the US are grown here. Chile – Try The World


Try The World: A Taste Of CHILE: Happy Mother’s Day! With Mother’s Day around the corner, this would make a terrific gift for a loved one and a great opportunity to sample foods from around the world. If you cherish good memories of great food shared with friends and family, then the TTW- Chile subscription box will fit the bill. Better yet, with a 3-6-12 month subscription, your loved one will travel the gastronomic world without leaving home; plus, you get to partake of the treats that come their way. This month’s box comes carefully curated by Chef Carolina Bazán of Ambrosia fame. She was born in Buenos Aires, grew up the child of Chilean diplomats living in New York, Peru and Washington, and traveled around the world with a mom who loved cooking and entertaining. Carolina sharpened her culinary skills in Lima, Milan, and Paris, and she is considered a top chef with culinary wins for the family eatery Ambrosia. Her mother’s interest in creating and sharing great foods rubbed off on Carolina and, nowadays, she runs the family restaurant in Santiago, capital of Chile.

Chilean cuisine stems mainly from the combination of traditional Spanish cuisine, Chilean Indigenous Mapuche culture and local ingredients, with later important influences from other European cuisines, particularly from Germany, Italy and France. The food tradition and recipes in Chile are notable for the variety of flavours and ingredients, with the country’s diverse geography and climate hosting a wide range of agricultural produce, fruits and vegetables.

Chilean cuisine is a reflection of the country’s topographical variety, featuring an assortment of seafood, beef, fruits, and vegetables. Traditional recipes include asado, cazuela, empanadas, humitas, pastel de choclo, pastel de papas, curanto and sopaipillas.[172] Crudos is an example of the mixture of culinary contributions from the various ethnic influences in Chile. The raw minced llama, heavy use of shellfish and rice bread were taken from native Quechua Andean cuisine, (although now beef brought to Chile by Europeans is also used in place of the llama meat), lemon and onions were brought by the Spanish colonists, and the use of mayonnaise and yogurt was introduced by German immigrants, as was beer.

    Wow! I don;t have a lot of experience when it comes to Chilean food but from what I’ve read in your post it seems very diverse. It is a combination of many other influences and also European influences which must make it a very interesting and exciting cuisine.

    I love trying out new dishes. They so tell you about a place. I wish to taste a South American dish someday. I hope there are good vegan dishes too. 🙂
