Luis Américo Camargo, gastronome and head of the festival since 2016, was responsible for the choice of guest restaurants.
“Brazilia has a thriving and diverse gastronomic scene. Many aspects and directions fit here: cuisines from around the world; traditional and modern; an international and increasingly in-depth and creative exploration of the Cerrado, a local biome, with its amazing fruits, nuts, spices. It’s a cosmopolitan place, yet so intimately connected to the heart of Brazil,” says Camargo.
The creations created especially for Taste are one of the highlights of the fair. One that promises to grab attention is Chicken Thigh and Drumstick made with Cerrado Rice, a recipe that uses buriti, peki, cashew and kagaita pulp, and topped with tulip. This is the creation of Francisco and Juliana Ansillero, father and daughter who share a kitchen.
