A select group of Chilean companies will be displaying food and wine products at the 2011 National Restaurant Association Show.
The Chilean Trade Commission at Chicago (ProChile Chicago) is pleased to announce that the following Chilean companies will exhibit their products at the newly designed Chilean Pavilion:
- Aconcagua Foods
- Agro America
- Elkan Wine
- Pure Fruit
- Chile, Seafood Resources
- Wines of Chile
ProChile, along with these seven companies, invites attendees to visit the Chilean Pavilion to learn how the companies have developed new technologies and innovative processes to ensure the production of consistent, top-quality products.
Attendees are encouraged to taste the best wines, Chilean seafood, meats, organic fruit purees, olive oils, natural canned fruits and vegetables from Chile.
Both Chilean chef Kathy Medel and Chicago celebrity chef Julius Russell will use these products to create exceptional dishes that highlight the great flavors of Chile. For chef Kathy Medel this will be her second appearance at the Chilean Pavilion and she is looking forward to cooking alongside chef Rusell, who as a culinary ambassador of Chilean cuisine is also very familiar with the rich flavors and products from Chile. He has been featured in numerous media outlets including The View, The Chicago Tribune, BET Networks, WGN, ABC, NBC, iVillage, Time Out Magazine and Chicago Sun-Times.
Carolina Ordonez, trade commissioner of Chile in Chicago, says that, "The NRA Show 2011 is a good opportunity for Chile to demonstrate why it is a leading producer and exporter of some of the greatest fruits, fish, seafood, poultry, meats, and premium wines while strengthening Chile’s presence in the American foodservice industry.”
