Vote for Elio Xicum to win the Saint Pellegrino Young Chef award from Italy

MÉRIDA, Yucatan.- In 2019, the Yucatecan chef Elio Xicum began to be noticed when he represented the State in the San Pellegrino Young Chef 2019-2020 contest, an international competition that seeks to promote young talent in gastronomy.

In that contest that was held in Lima, Peru two years ago, Elio was chosen as the Latin American semifinalist, since he won the Fine Dining Lovers subcategory.

By taking this subcategory, Elio went on to the final of the contest, which takes place this year in Milan, Italy.

The dish Nohoch

It should be noted that Elio competes with the Nohoch Ná dish, a Yucatecan tamale, called “colados”, stuffed with turkey gizzards accompanied by a recado negro.
