At the Cocinando con Nestlé corner, cooking fans had the unique opportunity to prepare a dish with Nestlé Chef Lorena García, owner of Miami’s Elements Tierra restaurant and one of today’s most distinguished chefs in the world of Latin cuisine.
“I’m very excited to start a new year with Nestlé and get cooking with my fans,” said Garcia. “Latin American cuisine is one of the world’s tastiest and my kitchen partners, LA LECHERA, MAGGI, ABUELITA and NESCAFÉ, help give dishes a truly authentic flavor. Nestlé products are a big part of my inspiration and essential ingredients for preparing main dishes, desserts, and beverages that have an authentic, home-cooked taste,” said Garcia.
Beginning Friday, April 6, 2007, fans will also be able to receive cooking tips and recipes from Nestlé Chef Lorena every Friday morning on the program Cada Día con María Antonieta on the Telemundo network. The segments will feature recipes from each of the four brands. Recipes will also be available through an 800 number and by visiting the Nestlé website at http://www.cocinandoconnestle.telemundo.com.
