About Me

I am the founder of the blog irenemercadal.com

Born in Valparaiso and raised between Reñaca and Tinguiririca (near San Fernando), I studied gastronomy and later had a canning company.

Irene Mercadal

I currently live in Santiago, so I started a blog called Mini gourmet, which was about the food I prepare for my children, but over time I decided to give the blog my name, because children already eat everything.

My recipes are the classic Chilean recipes, with some European touches, especially from Spanish and French cuisine.

The recipes that I like the most are the old ones, those recipes that bring back memories, and that have been lost over time.
