Rodolfo Guzmán aims to combine nature and cuisine at his Chilean restaurant Boragó. His techniques and ingredients are derived from what is in season, including meat, fish and shellfish, foraged herbs, edible flowers and wild berries, sourced from the wilds of Patagonia to the heights of the Andes.
Having trained under Andoni Luis Aduriz at Mugaritz, Chilean native Rodolfo Guzmán returned to Santiago, to begin working on the concept of Boragó. Using traditional methods used throughout many generations, dishes are cooked on rocks and ingredients are smoked over local timber.
Combining exquisite flavours, traditional concepts and modern techniques and theatre, Guzmán's Boragó was voted #5 in San Pellegrino's Latin America's Best Restaurants.
