Nacional 27 and ChicaGourmets present a five-course wine dinner featuring Chef Ruth Van Waerebeek and Concha y Toro Wines. An accomplished international chef and cookbook author from Belgium, Chef Ruth Van Waerebeek continues to inspire all with her vast culinary knowledge influenced by her adventurous travels to Africa, South America and the Caribbean. Her cuisine combines “New Latin” flavors and traditional French cooking concepts, creating dishes that are altogether fresh, flavorful, unusual and exotic.

The menu items by Chef Van Waerebeek find their perfect pair with the very distinct and revered wines of Concha y Toro from Chile. In 1883, Don Melchor de Concha y Toro and his wife, Dona Emiliana Subercaseaux, brought to Chile the noblest grapevines of the Bordeaux region of France, adhering to a winemaking philosophy based strongly on enhancing the distinctive characteristics of each original vineyard.
