No. 15 of Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, guest chef at RIJKS®
Chef Joris Bijdendijk is cooking together with top chef Nicolás López from restaurant Villanos and Bermudas on January 11, 12 and 13. The restaurant was awarded a number 15 ranking on the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list 2018.
During the three-day event, the chefs join forces and dedicate themselves to Manq’a, the gastronomic training set up by the development organization ICCO and Claus Meyer (from among others, The Nordic Food Movement and restaurant Noma).
Both Bijdendijk and Lopez support the worldwide trend in which chefs are committed to a better food system. “Chefs have an exemplary function and in some cases a forerunner role in the food system. They connect farmers and citizens and have the task of giving producers a platform” says Bijdendijk.
The originally Argentinean Nicolás López is owner and chef of restaurant Villanos and Bermudas in Bogotá, Colombia. López ‘his kitchen is characterized by the local product and a combination of modern and classic techniques. He works closely with the Manq’a program and, among other things, makes his restaurant available as a workplace for the young people who have completed the training. Both in the restaurant and during the culinary training, people are encouraged to cook with local ingredients, thus closing the gap between farmer and citizen.
