Latin Wave’s first foodie documentary celebrates Peruvian cuisine, boasting an eclectic array of flavors and ingredients. Finding Gaston follows chef Gaston Acurio, whose culinary skills and enterprising spirit have been instrumental in bringing the diversity of Peru’s cuisine to the rest of the world. For Acurio, it’s more than just about food, it’s about social revolution and national pride. The film follows him across Peru, meeting landowners and fishermen who provide the outstanding raw materials that have been essential to his success, and also shows Acurio receiving international culinary awards. A film in the tradition of El Bulli: Cooking in Progress and Jiro Dreams of Sushi.
