A Culinary Institute of America (CIA) alumni, Bel Coelho is a chef that carries on her resumé worldwide award-winning restaurants, such as El Celler de Can Roca. On her TV Show “Travel Recipes”, production broadcasted globally by Discovery Chanel, TLC and Arte, Coelho traveled through Brazil, visiting over 35 cities and discovering new native Brazilian ingredients. This project resulted in the creation of “Biomas” a menu where each dish carries an ingredient from a Brazilian biome or habitat like Amazon, Pantanal, Cerrado and Pampas. Another celebrated Bel’s creation is “Orixás”, a menu entirely dedicated to the gods of the Afro-Brazilian religion Candomblé.
Bel Coelho is a fierce defender of a sustainable and fair food system. Her ideals and principles are represented in her cuisine at Clandestino, the chef’s restaurant where she serves, one week per month, a creative tasting menu, carefully constructed with the chef’s unique narrative style and made with seasonal native ingredients.
