“La cocina es un lenguaje en el cual se puede expresar
armonía, creatividad, felicidad, belleza, poesía, compleji
dad, magia, humor, provocación y cultura.” - Ferrán Adriá
Tradición y modernidad, una
historia ancestral, marcada por la
conquista y el mestizaje, en contraste
con la crónica de un territorio definido
por una sociedad joven, en una
dinámica que involucra una condición
fronteriza, las migraciones constantes
y la creación de tradiciones que
afiancen el arraigo a una
nacionalidad, son elementos relevantes
en la relación culinaria
