Dazzle your tastebuds with some new flavors at the Festival Gastronómico de Ecuador, presented the first three days of April at Palermo’s Club Serrano in conjunction with the Ecuadorian embassy. The festival will feature the vibrant flavors of typical Ecuadorian cuisine, with samplings and full meals prepared by Ecuadorian chefs Dimitri Hidalgo Miño and Juan Carlos Pardo in the kitchen of Club Serrano’s head chef Alejandro Guardamaña. The chefs will also be giving cooking classes exhibiting how to dish up some of Ecuador’s finest products – think passion fruit, papaya, plantain, and jumbo shrimp. Live music by Ecuadorian pianist Maestro Paco Godoy will accompany the culinary festivities.
