Buenos Aires, Argentina – September 8, 2011
Juan Gaffuri Returns to His Roots as Executive Chef at
Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires. Le Mistral menu combines local flavours with Gaffuri's international experience and personal touches.
After years abroad, Juan Gaffuri has returned to the place where his culinary career began ten years ago:
At the Hotel's popular Le Mistral, Gaffuri's touch is evident in the menu, which infuses local ingredients with international flavours, as often prepared with classic French techniques as traditional Argentinian methods. Appropriately for a restaurant named for the annual winds that sweep the south of France, each course is themed on one of the winds that shape the Argentinian landscape: bora (appetisers), pampero (grilled specialties), siroco (mains) and zonda (sides).
Guests will find Chef's own version of the Latin classic Caesar salad offered alongside the French vichyssoise soup. Frogs legs are prepared in the Provençal style, while green bean soup gets a South American twist of lime. The country's internationally acclaimed beef is prepared to perfection, while Chilean salmon is also a favourite of regular guests. For dessert as well as breakfast, house-made dulce le leche is often on the menu. A selection of Argentinian and international wines enhances the dining experience.
Gaffuri also oversees menus at
Le Dôme bar, which serves Afternoon Tea as well as cocktails; the spectacular Sunday Brunch in the historic
La Mansión; and the many
catered events hosted at
Coming back to the kitchen where he started, in his home country, is a dream come true.
