The Epicure by Paradisus, an event that aims to exalt Dominican gastronomy, will be held from November 3 to 6 at the Paradisus Palma Real hotel, with the stellar participation of the outstanding chef Germán Ortega, Michelin Star, a native of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, trained in Sweden, England and in several cities of the Spanish geography.
“My style is contemporary with a marked European essence, but elaborated with local Canarian products, which in turn are products brought from abroad, but which are here to stay. Fish as the main product also involves me in my gastronomic world,” said Germán Ortega.
He perceives his participation in The Epicure by Paradisus as an experience he takes to continue his search for gastronomies different from his own and to compare and enjoy.
To his understanding, Dominican gastronomy is still unknown to him and that he will discover during his stay in the Dominican Republic. “Since, as is well known, Canarian gastronomy is a confluence of products from South and Central America, I am looking forward to comparing cultures and products”.
About the expectations he has of appearing in one of the most important hotels in the region, such as Paradisus Palma Real, he said that “what worries me most is to be up to the task and that the message reaches customers in a gastronomic way and that these events serve to share and demonstrate that gastronomy is a way of intermingling cultures”.
He reiterated that his main objective is to share the Dominican gastronomic culture because for him the essence of the people is in their gastronomy.
