The chef will conduct a live cooking show using a new Magefesa pressure cooker.

On Friday 7, at 5 pm, Professional Chef Pacho Gonzalez de Miguel will be participating in a live cooking show organized by Bravo supermarket chain. The event will take place at one of the Bravo locations, on Winston Churchill Avenue, corner with Heriberto Núñez, in the Nacional District, Santo Domingo.
