After a successful first installment featuring the distinct flavors of Bogotá, Colombia, the ‘Flavors of the World’ series continues at Casa de Campo Resort & Villas this June, bringing together four outstanding elBulli alumni to showcase their skills at the luxury Dominican resort. The gastronomic journey highlights the collection of casual, gourmet, and fine-dining options available at Casa de Campo by pairing internationally-renowned chefs with the resort’s creative culinary team, led by Executive Chef Anthony Masas, in the creation of unique, weekend-long culinary affairs that each feature a different flavor of the world and offering epicureans the opportunity to mingle with globally-recognized talent.
The next edition of ‘Flavors of the World’ will bring together four former elBulli chefs: Jorge Puerta, Pablo Pavón, Antonio Romero, as well as Casa de Campo’s own Anthony Masas. Located near the town of Rosas, Spain in Cataluña, elBulli was a Michelin 3-star restaurant run by chef Ferran Adrià. The small restaurant was described as “the most imaginative generator of haute cuisine on the planet,” has produced some of the world’s greatest chefs, who since the restaurant’s closing in 2011, have gone on to open their own acclaimed restaurants. Following his time at elBulli, Chef Jorge Puerta went on to work at the three-Michelin-star El Celler de Can Roca before opening the Restaurante SantoBokado in his native Venezuela; Ecuadorian chef Pablo Pavón went from serving as chef de partie at elBulli for four years to opening his own restaurant in Brazil, called Soeta; and, finally, Chef Antonio Romero followed up his elBulli experience with positions at Maison Pic in France and Suculent in Barcelona, where he has led the kitchen for the past five years.
The weekend’s culinary events, taking place from June 16-18, will include exclusive pairing dinners on the nights of Friday, June 16th, and Saturday, June 17th, followed by a more casual brunch on Sunday, June 18th. Traveling gourmands that wish to attend this once-in-a-lifetime collaboration at Casa de Campo can take advantage of a room and reservation package that includes a two-night stay and daily breakfast for two at room rates starting at $189 per person, per night.
