“'MISTURA'. THE POWER OF FOOD” Dir. By Julia Patricia Perez (Peru)

In Peru, cooking and eating go beyond the kitchen. The nation's passion for food transcends pots and pans,Peru finds in its cuisine its missing ingredient: A way to celebrate being Peruvian. A way to love, show respect and be proud. MISTURA, the gastronomic fair that happens in Lima every September, is the best example. This documentary manages to capture a slice of the immense spectrum of experiences that are simmered in Mistura every year. A place where cooks and patrons passionately teach us not only about food but most importantly about life.
