September 20, 21 & 22nd.


Widely renown as one of the world’s most talented and creative chefs, Diego Muñoz flawlessly executes a complex layering of flavors with extreme attention to detail with an innovative and clean style.

Until recently Executive Chef at the world renowned Astrid y Gastón at Casa Moreyra in Lima, Peru, since 2012, where he led the restaurant from #42 to #14 on The World’s 50 Best Restaurant List and #2 of Latin America.


Earlier this year Diego Muñoz announced his departure from Astrid y Gastón, instead to devote a year to culinary exploration, adventure and limited time-based projects around the world with the highest possible culinary value in a melting pot of different cuisines and cultures, and in that way create the formula of the culinary DNA for his future main restaurant to be.

During a highly concentrated 2016 Chef Muñoz explores Europe, South, -Central and North America, Asia and the Middle East through 22 different culinary projects across the world.
