The Consulate General of Peru is delighted to present the film "De ollas y sueños"
Peru is in the middle of a gastronomic revolution. Your army: miles of cooking students. Their leader: the Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio. Their weapons: centuries of ethnic fusion. In his documentary "De Ollas y Sueños", the well-known Peruvian director Ernesto Cabellos presents a spectacular cuisine of his country and asks: Is it possible that a nation is represented by its cuisine? This documentary document refers to the cuisines of the coast, highlands and jungle of Peru, as well as the Peruvian expatriate communities in Paris, London, Amsterdam and New York in search of answers.
