"I grew up on Chile's central shore near Valparaíso, an area that is also known as the "Coast of Poets" because renowned writers had residences nearby. My childhood was spent by the sea, watching my grandmother cook in a beachside restaurant, surrounded by the aromas of salt, fresh conger and abalone. Working in remote locations, I particularly enjoy working with local produce and making home-made pasta, but I have a soft spot for seafood from my upbringing and also because it is so deeply ingrained in Chile's gastronomic identity."
