From fresh, local ingredients to South American masterpieces With his passion for cooking ignited at age 13, Chef Andrés Mardones Peña’s love of food and culture has seen him live and work across three continents – from Chile and Argentina in South America to Spain and London in Europe, and now the city he calls home, Sydney, Australia. Along his journey he’s explored different cuisine combinations that cast entirely new creations. Now he’s bringing his vision of classic South American food with an international twist to Miele, and you. Andrés’ creativity and passion for bringing out the best in simple ingredients continues to inspire everyone at Miele, especially our Culinary Experts, who are helping to bring his wonderful recipes to life in the Miele kitchens. We trust this special South American menu of Andrés’ own recipes and recommendations will inspire you to create a little slice of Latin America in your own kitchen.
