I am now in this beautiful part of the world, the south of Chile, in the Lago de Todos los Santos. These overwhelming landscapes inspire me to share a few words with all of you. It is amazing to be here and to be able to try all the products that this land has to offer, soon I will update El Sarten with images and all about this culinary adventure. This lake is the door to Patagonia, surrounded by volcanoes like this one, the Osorno.
