Gelinaz Stay In with Rodolfo Guzman

Gelinaz, the chef’s collective,  are back in town on the 3rd December. But this time, they are not travelling, they are staying “at home”. What travels this time, are their recipes. Each chef had to submit eight recipes that are typical for him/her, but she/he never served them at the restaurant yet. Those recipes were then shuffled and sent to another chef who will remix them in his/her own way and serve on the 3rd of December, for one night only, dishes inspired by those recipes to her/his guests. The guests and the chef will get to know whose recipes was interpreting the chef only at the end of the dinner through the Gelinaz ambassador who will attend the dinner (I will be that night the ambassador at the Aimsir restaurant in Ireland). Ambassadors will also take care of communication from the restaurants on that night, so if you are curious what is happening on the other side of the world, do follow us on Instagram (mine is here).

Rodolfo Guzman has received his recipes. What now?


What was your first thought when you read the recipes you received?

Very very different stuff, which perfectly matches my wish of doing something totally different!

What do you think of them now?

That the recipes have a lot of potential, mainly because I have some very particular ideas on what to serve and how to serve it for Gelinaz!!!! 

If you had to choose an animal to describe them, what would it be?

Something between a cheetah and a dog .

How will you approach it?

Creativity is always my tool, but juiciness will be the thing !

What will be the greatest challenge for you in this Gelinaz project?

Can’t tell you too much but for sure something that you would otherwise never ever see at Boragó.

And what are you looking forward to?

We are working on a great message to share in the gastronomy world, and to be honest I really want to cook and to serve those new out of the box dishes.

After this event is behind you, what’s the next thing?

Summer menu at Boragó, tremendously exciting! It will be the most delicious Summer we’ve ever cooked for. Why don’t you come down the South?


Rodolfo Guzman will be cooking at Boragó in Santiago, Chile. Tickets are sold out but you can join the waiting list here.
