TALLER serves high quality food with its roots in the Venezuelan kitchen,which is as diverse and fascinating as the Venezuelan landscape, with its Caribbean shores, dense Amazonian jungle, vast grassy plains and the towering Andes. The name means workshop", and the idea of the kitchen as a workshop is crucial for the way food is prepared and served at TALLER.
At TALLER, the process of cooking is seen as closely related to more traditional art forms: the creation of food is not different in kind from the sculptors creation of the sculpture or the painters creation of the painting. Our "workshop" is also a place for exploration: In our kitchen,we we play with both new and traditional culinary techniques, possibilities and combinations. It is also true for the guest, who will explore new cultures through new flavors. This is where we reach one of the most fascinating aspects of food: through local produce it is possible to travel to completely different cultures throughout the world.
