“It’s always intrigued me that with all the differences you can find in a country, there’s one place where the whole nation feels in total harmony. In my country, Peru, it’s not soccer, or music, let alone politics. That place is the kitchen.
Throughout centuries of racial and ethnic mixing of encounters and lost connections, Peruvian cooking has become delectably integrating. In the kitchen, flavors, aromas and colors fight, negotiate and make peace with one another. Each one searches for its place and lives alongside the others.
This documentary is an exploration to a place where all of one nation’s peoples are represented. Where poor and rich people share the same spirit.”
