Boragó’s head chef and owner, Rodolfo Guzmán, will move his restaurant from Santiago to Madrid from November 14 for the sixth edition of the pop-up format for a month, while BORAGÓ in Santiago will remain open.
This change of venue by the Chilean chef marks a comeback after a three-year Covid break, when international and national chefs have come to Madrid to cook for a limited time with both their crews and equipment.
While the menu is still incomplete, Guzmán prefers to primarily use locally sourced, harvested ingredients from small producers in Chile.
Guzmán opened Boragó in 2006, where he explored Chile for more than 15 years. He then sought to develop a deep knowledge of his land and its materials. In 2015, Boragó ranked 37th on the annual list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. He was also the recipient of the first Sustainable Restaurant Award presented by Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants.
Guzmán also established the first food research center in Chile to work with local ingredients.
