February – Perú Sabe: La cocina, arma social
Perú Sabe’s directors
Date: Thursday, February 20
The screening will be held in the Abramson Family Founders Room
at the School of International Service.
Description: There is an unprecedented phenomenon happening in Peru today. Cuisine, something so ordinary in any other countries, has turned into an engine for change. A machine that creates producers, chefs, entrepreneurs, restaurants and consumers. Today, over 80,000 young people have chosen to study gastronomy instead of playing soccer.
Ferran Adrià, the world’s most prestigious chef, and Gastón Acurio, Latin America’s most influential chef, together embark on a journey to explore the roots of the splendor of Peruvian cuisine and its potential to transform lives.
PERU SABE is the result of this journey; an exciting testimony to the way in which Peruvian cuisine has found a perfect recipe for spurring social and economic development.
Indeed, this is part of a growing movement throughout Latin America, where gastronomy is becoming one of the region’s most important assets.
