Castelo do Batel

Castelo do Batel, the place that hosted the edition of Curitiba

The dinner of Curitiba was held at Castelo do Batel, one of the most charming places of the city. The chefs explained their dishes to the public in kitchens that were set up on a stage, assembled specially for the event. It was a true gastronomic experience that involved the five senses of the guests.

The first edition of Goals for Life Copa Gastronômica was esteemed by the society of Curitiba, people who tasted, on first hand, a unique and unedited experience in the city, provided by the dinner – the chef experience. The preparation of the dishes was done live, on the style of “kitchen show”.
