Martínez is passionate about exploring new, yet unknown ingredients, which can offer even more wealth to the local cuisine. The chef approaches the diversity of ingredients in a manner akin to the people of the Andes who see the country not as a horizontal plane, but as vertical. As such, they can make use of everything the flora and fauna have to offer.
