Netflix’s hugely popular Street Food series travels to Latin America in its second instalment, which returns on July 21.
The trailer for Street Food: Latin America has dropped and it looks like the perfect food-themed escapism in a time of restricted travel.
The team that brought us Chef's Table have followed up their Street Food Asia, a show that brings high production values, classical music and slow-motion food preparation to the world of hawkers and street food vendors in Asian countries, with a series that focuses on Central and South America.
Created by David Gelb and Brian McGinn,the seriestravels to the Latin American countries of Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru. There we meet the people who sell food from markets, stalls and trucks, and we learn the history, meaning and context of the dishes they prepare.
After Central was named restaurant of the decade by Latin America's 50 Best, Virgilio Martínez is looking to explore new territories, but not without the help of some super-talented chefs. Meet the trio helping the Peruvian chef realise his vision in Russia and Japan.
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
