Champerico beach will have better cuisine offer thanks for Fundazucar
The Sugar Foundation – Fundazucar- in alliance with the Ministry of Economy and the local government of Champerico, Retalhuleu (226 km from Guatemala City) gave the Gastronomic Diversification diploma aimed at cooks and chefs from the different restaurants and hotels in that locality.
This diploma is part of the “Sustainable Strategy for Fishing and Tourism” which aims to promote economic reactivation in the beach areas of the South of Guatemala. In this case, 26 hotel and restaurant cooks and chefs completed training in new recipes for seafood-based dishes.
The graduates will continue their training the following year at the Technical Institute for Training and Productivity -Intecap- with the diploma of “Cuisine of the Sea” with a scholarship granted by Fundazucar to continue innovating in new recipes.
With this knowledge acquired, chefs and cooks will be able to present innovative dishes based on seafood from the region to their clients and thus expand the gastronomic offer for tourists visiting the town.
The Gastronomic Diversification Diploma has been given in the towns of Escuintla, Santa Rosa and Retalhuleu and more than 200 chefs and cooks have graduated.
