Ñam, Santiago’s premiere event featuring all things food kicked off yesterday. With dozens of chefs participating from now until Sunday, surely there is a workshop or menu to suit your preferences. As Chile’s culinary scene has shifted in recent years to a deep focus on artisanal ingredients and heritage food ways, it will be interesting to see what is on offer at the festival this weekend. Located at Cerro Santa Lucía, and free to the public, Ñam is advertising this outdoor exposition as “an encounter with the best of Chile” (“Un encuentro con lo mejor de Chile”). With a claim like that, who can afford NOT to be there? Expect close to fifty vendors on hand to share the distinctive food stuffs of this diverse country.
