Felipe, born in Santiago, studied international gastronomic administration. He showed a great interest in cooking from a young age, but actually picked it up again in 2018, when he started working independently as a pastry chef. In January 2022 Felipe joined our chef Ivo as a sous-chef at BaseCamp, thus making his first steps of development in a professional kitchen. This season he works hand-in-hand with Ivo and together, every night, they bring amazing meals to the table. In addition, he is a lover of swimming and on on warm days he dares to challenge the cold water of Rio Palena.
“I love nature and the tranquility that comes from being in a place like Patagonian BaseCamp, where I have been able to develop and improve my work as a professional and at the same time enjoy being together with my friend and colleague Ivo and the whole team.”
“I love knowing that at any moment in my free time I can go and swim in the river, the water fills me with energy and what possibly could be a better place than here in the middle of beautiful Patagonia”
