Last Hope Chef

Chef at the Estancia Perales, Last Hope Sound, Chile

More specifically, a chef on the Last Hope Sound, or Seno Ultima Esperanza, in Chilean Patagonia.

He’s the resident chef at the Estancia Perales, located in one of the most serene settings imaginable, who prepared a traditional Patagonian parrillada, or barbeque on the return from a boat trip to the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers in the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. In case you missed it, a detailed post on the trip, along with 40 photos and quartet of video, is here.

A full uncropped version below.

For the record: today’s Pic du Jour, the 390th straight, was snapped on 07-Feb-2013, exactly two years ago today. I can still taste that lunch as if it were yesterday.

    I went there too the first time I worked in Puerto Natales. The glaciers are an awesome views but the barbecue with this chef is an absolute must! I remember the taste of the meat and the views…. Thanks for the reminder!

      My pleasure – I figured you were probably there, too. 🙂 A great day trip, from start to finish.
