We want to express our happiness and pride to the women of El Quetzalito, who this weekend won the 3rd and 2nd place in the Gastronomic Izabal contest. They had days of arduous training, more than 24 hours in a row of intense work in the preparation of the dishes, sleeplessness, sweat and stress… but in the end they succeeded! They won with the preparation of two lion fish recipes. The reward of their effort is great and now they are the vivid example that there are no limits for who sets a goal and works to reach it.

We are very grateful to Chef Titi, who with much affection dedicated time to this community. There is nothing better than finding selfless people who provide their work and time to make this world a better place.
