This is the video we’ve been waiting for. Last month, to kick off the 2015 season of Cocina Sin Fronteras in Buenos Aires, chef Fer Rivarola invited a couple of meat masters, Juan Gaffuri from Elena at the Four Seasons, and acclaimed Peruvian butcher-cum-chef, Renzo Garibaldi, from Lima’s Osso. The three got together for a one-night-only dinner that featured,  you guessed it, lots of dry-aged meat.

OSSO Is Looking For Cooks (ES)

If you care at all about what’s happening in South American gastronomy, but haven’t yet heard of Osso, then you’re probably listening to the wrong people.  At just a little over a year since opening, Renzo Garibaldi‘s butcher shop and eatery on the outskirts of Lima has taken Peru, and really the entire continent, by storm.  Serving up steak that’s been dry-aged for 300 days and pork that’s hung around in a cooler to perfection as well, Osso has brought real butchery to South America, and everybody wants a piece.  And now, they are looking for cooks.

We won’t offer factual information, but word has it that Garibaldi and the Osso team could soon be expanding to another location in Lima.  Per a Facebook post yesterday, they’re looking for cooks that want to learn and love working for a team.  Is that you?  Do you love meat?  And fame?  Maybe you should send your resumé.  Suerte!
