Earlier this week, the team behind the Latin America’s 50 Best Awards, which has been moved to Mexico for 2015, were in the host country to commingle with the chefs who will host hordes of fans, journalists, and other chefs from throughout the region. Their hosts for the visit included chefs Jorge Vallejo of Quintonil, Mikel Alonso of Biko, and Pedro Evia of Kuuk, amongst others, who cooked for their guests, and shared some ideas of what this year’s ceremony will look like. Running the kitchen for the #50BestTalks was Elena Reygadas of Rosetta, who was the recipient of last year’s award for best Female Chef in Latin America.

For the inaugural edition of the 2015 season of Cocina Sin Fronteras, earlier this month Rivarola and Lafuente headed to Mexico, to cook at the widely acclaimed Biko.

For one night only, Rivarola will join forces in Mexico City with Biko’s Mikel Alonso, Casa Oaxaca’s Alejandro Ruíz, and Cholatería Qué Bo!’s José Ramon Castillo for a multi-course meal that spans hemispheres and the multinational flavors of Latin America
