The Villa Cortés hotel in Playa de Las Américas is celebrating today the victory of two of its chefs in the VIII Canarian Chef Championship in Santa Cruz. Contestants came from all over the Canaries, but finally, Adrián Bosch won the first prize, with his assistant, Alfredo Hernández, being awarded the prize for best assistant (sous chef). Neither man could conceal his delight at the recognition of their work, with Adrián Bosch, just 23 years old, weeping with joy. Second prize for best chef went to Antonio Cavanillas, of a restaurant in Vegueta, Gran Canaria, and third was Jorge Peñate, again from Tenerife. The competition was sponsored by the Tenerife Cabildo as part of its Plan de Gastronomía.
