Argentina and Ascona are about to
meat meet as part of the Gusto Festival 2018.
During four days, Argentinian chefs will be firing up their stoves and BBQ grills in order to present the best dishes, desserts and drinks. This will be an Ascona first, but the Gusto Festival has long established itself north of the Alps. We are excited about this premiere because the warm climate and lakefront location of Ascona are a perfect match.
As part of this year’s gourmet festival, the Romantik Hotel Castello Seeschloss as well as the following partner hotels will be hosting nightly events: Hotels Casa Berno, Villa Orselina and Centro Dannemann. It will be a culinary journey through Argentina with lots of fire and passion… There will be an evening of Argentina fine dining or a lakeside BBQ party.
Kitchen Party at the Castello Seeschloss
We are particularly fired up about the kitchen party that is about to go down at the Castello Seeschloss. The host of this castle hotel by the lake, Daniel Heiserer, has created the concept for an event that promises to be unforgettable. At five different stations on two floors, the lucky guests will be treated by Argentine chef Mauricio Couly. His own Instagram account reveals that he is into cheese production, so we are curious to experience his passion firsthand.
The Gusto Festival Kitchen Party takes place on June 2, starting with an apéro at 7:00 PM. The all-inclusive price is 96 francs per person.
Additional Gusto Festival venues in Ascona
After Buenos Aires and São Paulo, the young Argentinian chef Leo Lanussol is bringing his urban kitchen to Villa Orselina on May 31. The following day on June 1, Argentinian desserts of pastry chef Mariela Morán will be served at the event “6 Mani” at Hotel Casa Berno.
And finally, on the last day of the festival, a typical Argentine gourmet grill party will take place at the Centro Dannemann grotto in nearby Brissago. Chef Mauricio Couly of Patagonia will present “asado”, a traditional Argentine meal prepared on the open fire. Accompanied by fine wines, what else could we ask for?
We are ready for the Gusto Festival at the Castello Seeschloss. Are you?
