Last year she invited the Panamanian chef Mario Castrellón to put on the first Panamanian Food Festival. “He exhibited Panamanian dishes at the Hilton Hotel in London, and everyone had the opportunity to really discover what Panamanian food is like. It was so well-received, that they were asking him when he would open a restaurant there,” recalled Delgado.
