Future Food | Episode 1 | Peru: Old or New?

28m 09s

Behind an unmarked door in a Lima suburb, Javier Wong is planning a revolution in more than just stir-fry cooking. In fact the very future of food – and farming – is being re-imagined here in a city where nobody dined out 20 years ago, where there is no national tradition of gastronomy, and where there is considerable malnutrition. But in the capital of Peru, a city not so long ago wracked by Shining Path terrorist violence, the top chefs – men and women like Gaston Acurio, Javier Wong and Pedro Miguel Schiaffino – believe gastronomy can achieve social justice.
