Ernesto Cabellos’ deliciously informative documentary tells us that, in Peru, it’s not football, music, or politics that unites people, but food. With the rich diversity of delectable dishes on display in Cooking Up Dreams, it’s easy to see why. A country historically characterized by ethnic and economic differences, Peru has produced a complex cuisine that acts as a binding, integrative cultural force. Cabellos travels the world to explore people’s appreciation of, and devotion to, the art of Peruvian cooking. In the Andes, birthplace of the potato, cooking in earth ovens connects people to their traditions and history. At the chicest restaurants in Lima, Madrid, London, New York, Amsterdam, and Paris, food is a bridge from one culture to another. In a humble tavern in the Amazon, it is a means of economic development. Tantalizing, flavourful, and satisfying, Cooking Up Dreams will leave you asking for seconds. — Andrew McIntosh
