In 2011, when Ferran Adrià first came to Peru, what he found had a profound impact on him. After witnessing the endless lines of young students who packed the stands of the Dibós Coliseum in Lima, where he was the presenter at a conference titled “Juntos para Transformar” or “Transforming Together,” and experiencing the Mistura food festival, the most influential chef in the world was convinced that there is a unique phenomenon brewing in Peru that is changing the landscape of that Andean country.
With Gastón as his guide, Ferran Adriá set out on a journey that took him through Peruvian territories along the coast, into the mountains, and the Amazon country in search not only of new flavors, but of the life experiences that are hidden behind them.
Perú Sabe: Cuisine as an agent of social change is the product of this voyage. Created by Media Networks and Tensacalma, and coproduced with RTVE in collaboration with Univisión, this 70 minute documentary will be presented to a massive audience of culinary students next Friday, June 8, and shown three days later in New York.
The television premier of Perú Sabe: Cuisine as an agent of social change will broadcast e on Plus TV (channel 6 on Movistar TV) and will later be aired in the U.S. on Univision and in Europe on TVE (Spanish Television).
