When Claus Meyer speaks, you listen.  It seems that when the Noma and Gustu co-owner mentioned in an interview back in September that he was thinking of bringing his non-profit system of cooking schools to Colombia, he wasn’t lying.  As part of a two-day workshop last week in Bogotá entitled Co-Creation: Gastronomic Schools In Colombia, Manq’a Bolivia was on hand to discuss implementing the program in Colombia.  No official opening date has been announced yet, but this will be a huge move for Meyer, the Manq’a team, and Melting Pot, as their ‘food for social change’ programs spread beyond the borders of Bolivia.
