Chefs from 14 restaurants will be participating today in a cooking laboratory under the auspices of the Cámara Costarricense de Restaurantes y Afines. The event will be in the Hotel Balmoral in San Jose’s downtown.
The event is a run up to the fourth annual Congreso Nacional de Restaurantes.
The selected restaurants are those that have shown social and business responsibility and other desirable traits. The menu will be one that was designed under the parameters of the government’s Plan Nacional de la Gastronomía Sostenible y Saludable and makes use of native plants.
The idea is to give a boost to Costa Rican culinary practices.
