Peru is experiencing something almost unique in the world: chefs have become important change agents in a country whose society and culture are rapidly evolving in the 21st century. As a result, more than 80,000 young Peruvians are studying gastronomy, instead of becoming lawyers, doctors or even footballers, as they follow this new path towards economic and social development.
Ferran Adrià, the most prestigious chef in the world and Gastón Acurio, the most influential chef in Latin America, have undertaken a journey to explore the attraction and “splendor” of Peru’s cooking. Perú Sabe is the outcome of this trip.
Perú Sabe takes you inside the Peruvian Kitchen to explore, not only the food, but the chefs, aspiring as well as accomplished, and the gastronomy culture that are transforming Peru. Along the way, Ferran and Gaston find a whole new recipe for social inclusion and human advancement, one that has the potential to resonate far beyond Peru’s borders.
The film premieres on June 8 in Lima and June 11 in New York City.
