Description

Can a cook change his country through his food? Finding Gaston follows acclaimed chef Gaston Acurio, of Lima’s Astrid y Gaston, who is largely credited with creating and popularizing Peruvian cuisine, to find out the stories, the inspirations and the dreams behind the man who has taken his cuisine outside the kitchen on a mission to change his country with his food. Peruvian-born director Perez films Gaston traveling the country, sampling regional fare and praising local quinoa farmers practicing traditional crop-raising techniques, as well as fishermen whose methods privileged sustainability long before it was a fashionable concept. Join the culinary journey into the world of Peruvian cuisine to discover the power of food in Peru - and around the world.
