Discover an Ancient Recipe of the Incas

Posted on 6/6/2017 12:00:00 AM in What We’re Watching

A note from independent filmmaker David Conover on why he chose this film:

Virgilio Martínez is a world-renowned Peruvian chef. He has made his mark within the gastronomic community by incorporating traditional Inca cooking methods into the preparation of his dishes. In this episode of Culinary Journeys, Martínez visits an Inca community in Chahuay, located some 11,000 feet above sea level in the Acomayo province of Peru. His aim is to learn about the huatia, an ancient dish consisting of potatoes baked with an earthen oven. Francisco, one of the farmers, explains that Inca potato seeds are passed down from generation to generation. In this instance, food is not just a symbolic link to one’s ancestry - it is a tangible cultural thread for the Inca people of Chahuay.
