June 18, 2014

Just one of the many food and beverage Pavilions at the RAMMYS is courtesy of The Embassy of Argentina and visiting Chef Diego Biondi. Attendees of The RAMMYS will experience Chef Biondi’s creative menu of Argentine classic dishes with his unique and delicious influence. From Herb Roasted Patagonian Leg of Lamb with Red Quinoa, to Traditional Northern Argentine Meat Empanadas with Spicy Chimichurri Sauce, the menu shares the unique foods and wines of Argentina and its varied agricultural landscape.

Chef Diego Biondi first discovered his love of cooking as a small child watching his Italian grandmother cook family recipes. With an undergraduate education that started in Biochemistry and ended at the International Buenos Aires Hotel and Restaurant School (IBAHRS) Diego is uniquely prepared for life as a chef. Internships at the Claridge and Alvear Palace Hotels taught him old world Argentinean traditions before he fine tuned his culinary voice at the International Hyatt of Buenos Aires and Buzios a small boutique hotel in Brazil. Diego became the face of Argentinian cooking for millions of international viewers of the hit show Cotidiano where he taught new and healthy Argentinian cuisine. He also taught as a professor at IBAHRS before traveling the world to work at St. Kitts and Nevis at the Marriott Resort and Marriott Chicago. Happily Diego landed in New York City where he has worked at the Rivington Hotel at the Lower East side and is currently the Executive Sous Chef at the Mandarin Soho.
