Celebrity Chef Pablo Ranea from Mendoza, Argentina, will be going all-out on Thursday, September 15 and Saturday, September 15 at two charity functions, held at Tango Argentine Grill and Hadicurari restaurant. The chef, who has been teaching workshops at prestigious restaurants in Lima, Peru, San Francisco and New York, among others, will be coming to Aruba to host a workshop for EPI students and teach the culinary team of Aruba Wine and Dine. Proceeds of the 4-course lunch & wine pairing and dinner & wine pairing will be going to the foundation for homes for the elderly on the island, SABA.
Earlier that week a group of 15 students and two teachers of EPI will be taught the celebrity chef’s take on mise-en-place, ingredients, appetizers, entrées and desserts during a workshop. The Pop-Up Lunch at Tango Argentine Grill is held on Thursday, September 15. The event, which is open to visitors and locals, is made up of a 4-course lunch and wine pairing. As Chef Pablo is at the forefront of contemporary food and wine pairing, this might provide some amazing pairings.
