Quique Dacosta is taking part in Alimentarte Food Festival
Quique Dacosta is in Cartagena de Indias, taking part in the second edition of the Diners Club Restaurant Tour, within the setting of the Alimentarte Food Festival
Quique Dacosta cooked a meal last night in Cartagena de Indias in tandem with the local chef Andrés Hoyos, against the backdrop of the prestigious Alimentarte Food Festival. The purpose of the dinner, which was held at the Bohemia Restaurant, was to help the families of Colombian police officers that have fallen victim of the country’s armed conflict.
The Spanish chef, who is currently putting the final touches to his new fine-dining experience at the Quique Dacosta Restaurante, signed up for the project alongside such renowned Latin American chefs as Jorge Vallejo and Virgilio Martínez, and served up his most iconic dishes: Foie Gras Cuba Libre, Ash Rice and Citrus Field. In addition, he designed a dish inspired by his most recent experiences in Colombia.
Dacosta, who has taken part in this humanitarian project organised by the Corazón Verde Foundation for the second year in a row, is an ambassador for the Spanish NGO Acción contra el Hambre [Action against Hunger]. What’s more, he also supports other charitable causes such as the campaign Restaurants against Hunger, in which he cooks a solidarity menu at each one of his four restaurants –Quique Dacosta Restaurante, Mercatbar, El Poblet and Vuelve Carolina- for the purpose of raising funds to combat child malnutrition.
