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.

As the last dinner of 2014, the team at Buenos Aires’ El Baqueano decided to make November’s installment of the Cocina Sin Fronteras a big one.  To close out another successful year of dinners that included a gala event with Alex Atala, Nikkei cuisine with Mitsuharu Tsumura, and more than a few jaunts abroad to Chile, Venezuela, and Uruguay, Fer Rivarola and wife Gabriela invited their close friends and wildly talented chefs, Carlos Garcia from Venezuela’s Alto, and Jorge Vallejo from Mexico’s Quintonil.  Like we’ve been telling you since last year, if you have yet to make it to one of these dinners, you’re really missing out.

Even if you haven’t had the privilege of attending one of the epic Cocina Sin Fronteras meals that Fer Rivarola and the team at El Baqueano put on every month in Buenos Aires, at least you have the team behind The Great Cuisine to make stunning videos that at least give you a glimpse inside the experience.  Back in July, Alex Atala returned for his second appearance within the series, though this time the dinner was for a much great cause.  July’s Cocina Sin Fronteras dinner was a benefit for Fundación Alfarcito, which aids farmers high up in the Andes.  Dinner was held at the Faena hotel, and the more than 100 guests were treated to a multi-course meal that they won’t soon forget.

In yet another installment from The Great Cuisine, watch as Atala talks about the importance of community during a press conference prior to the event, then work his charm and culinary magic for a star-studded room of guests.  With Cocina Sin Fronteras already gaining a good amount of international press, we’re expecting more dinners of this caliber for next year.  For now, we’ve got memories, and they’re damn good.
