One thing is certain: you can’t leave Santiago without trying a crudo, a GermanChilean delicacy similar to steak tartare. And Crudo y Sin Censura is the perfect place to have your first bite. Crudos are usually made from toast, marinated meat with lemon and a variety of different sauces.

In 1994, Astrid Gutsche and Gastón Acurio arrived in Miraflores, Perú, from Paris, where they both studied the culinary arts. With an emphasis on Peruvian and French fusion food, they founded their first restaurant in Miraflores, and some years later expanded through Latin America to open a restaurant in Providencia. Their menu changes according to the available local products of the season, and the newest addition to their menu includes a five-course option featuring rockfish with gnocchi, squid ink sauce and an enormous sharing platter of sorbets.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
