Another month, another gastronomic adventure! Following the recent success of Flavors of the World Mexico, the resort has already announced its next chef and destination! Prepare yourself for Flavors of the World Chile with Chef Kurt Schmidt in just 10 days!!! The culinary event series continues to pair internationally-renowned chefs with the resort’s creative culinary team, led by Executive Chef Anthony Masas, in the creation of unique, weekend-long culinary affairs that each feature a different flavor of the world and offering epicureans the opportunity to mingle with globally-recognized talent alongside the Casa de Campo culinary team.
Located in the heart of Santiago, 99 is well known for its inventive, modern tasting menus featuring the best Chilean products from land and sea. Their website reads “The 99 Restaurant is neither large nor elegant, but it is considered the best in Chile. Our kitchen tries to be sincere, not forgetting the taste or the affection and respect for the product”. Both executive chef Kurt Schmidt and pastry chef Gustavo Saez have developed a deep appreciation for Chilean local ingredients. 99 Restaurant is on the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list for 2015 and 2016. In 2017 the restaurant earned the second place in the Top10 Best Restaurants of Santiago and Best Contemporary Chilean Cuisine Restaurant. Gustavo Sáez won the Best Pastry Chef in Chile and Kurt Schmidt the third Best Chef in the country.
Seven years ago, Chef Kurt Schmidt was studying engineering and announced he would leave it to follow a career in cooking. He worked at Taller De Raiz, is now the inspirator of this creative gastro-bistro. The young self-made Chef traveled around the world in order to gather culinary ideas from various concepts. He worked with Rodolfo Guzmán at Boragó Santiago, with Eneko Atxa at Azurmendi in Spain, with Ángel León at Aponiente in Spain, and also joined the Noma team from René Redzepi in Copenhagen. He is known for striving to achieve a perfect balance between the main ingredient and the diversity of the components on the plate. It is guaranteed that guests will enjoy the creative and surprising dishes made with local ingredients when visiting 99 Restaurant.
