Rodolfo Guzmán, restaurant Boragó in Santiago, Chile
Rodolfo Guzmán is the Chilean chef who became the voice of his country’s cuisine.

Today, Boragó has a community of small producers and foragers supplying the restaurant with the essential ingredients from the Chilean seashores, land and mountains. After many years or hard work, Rodolfo Guzmán has put both his restaurant and Chile on the culinary world map and has earned a place in the 50 best restaurants ranking.
