A Chef's Tasting with Cristian Rebolledo - Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
- The Islands were first discovered in 1535 by Fray Tomás de Berlanga on a sailing to Peru and made famous by scientist Charles Darwin 300 years later where he would develop his theory of natural selection.
- In 1978, the 21 islands, home to some 2,017 different species of fish, reptiles, bird, mammals and plant life, were declared a UNESCO world heritage site.
Each original dish made, presented and explained by personable Chef added the perfect touch to the tasting. It was quite special sitting there on this floating ship, in the middle of the Galápagos Islands, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Everything about the islands themselves was quite special, from the landscapes and of course the wild life, to their volcanic formation & history. As a people we are lucky to have recognized the importance of all this beauty several decades ago, making a conscious effort to keep the ecosystems undisturbed and ensure we can continue to enjoy this place stuck in time for more decades to come.
