Peruvian cuisine: a tool for social empowerment

Top chefs Ferran Adrià and Gastón Acurio have been promoting Peruvian gastronomy as a force for social transformation and empowerment at a recent presentation at the UN in New York. Earlier this week, the pair presented their documentary “Perú Sabe, La cocina, arma social” which examines how – with more than 80,000 culinary students in the country – Peru’s booming culinary scene has provided inspiration for a generation of youngsters. Cuisine, argues the documentary, gives them the passion and freedom that allows them to transform their lives.

You can see a preview of the documentary below; video is in Spanish with English Subtitles. It will be aired Univision in the USA on June 17th and in Spain on RTVE.
