From October 18 to 20 Valdivia, in the far south of Chile, will be taken over by renowned chefs, fishermen and other leading marine experts to celebrate and talk about the fruits of Chile’s coast. The festival will focus on artisan fishing, sustainability, and the health benefits that can be derived from both. Rodolfo Guzmán, of Santiago’s acclaimed Boragó, will be on hand to discuss sustainability and the importance of Chile’s “fruits of the sea.” He, along with a panel of chefs, artist and fishermen from across Chile, Easter Island, and even Venezuela, will help make this the best edition of FEGAM yet.
In addition to the talks and forums, there will be cooking classes, nightly performances, and even a program dedicated entirely to children.

With spring in full swing and the weather in the south of Chile and its peak of perfection, this is one festival not to be missed.
