Each program will captivate us with the various “street” foods, the most colorful traditions and the saddest and most beautiful cookery stories. All at the same time.
Greater Latin America
To think of Asia as a great extension whose countries are “similar” is as wrong is as wrong as doing it with “Latin America”. While it is true that the language gives that familiarity, it is also true that this great territory is multicultural and vast in every way. So, in the Netflix documentary Street Food: Latin America , we can take a look at the differences of various vibrant and beautiful cities from different parts of the continent . In this second season we will also learn devastating and endearing stories.
One of the most beautiful things in this series is that it gives vital importance to the orality of cooks . To their most intimate stories, to their most painful struggles and to the paths that led them to dedicate themselves to selling food on the street. A simple and necessary activity in each of the cities, and in itself of the populations of the world.
Both in the first season of Asia and this one in Latin America, Street Food gives voice to many women . This is enriching because they tell us how they found their vocation, their destiny, but also their only way to get ahead in a hostile world with women in street food. So, in addition to hunger, Street Food: Latin America reaches our hearts with the testimonies of the cooks.
‘Street Food: Latin America’ and the best dish
After the premiere of the series on Netflix, the platform used its networks to carry out a ” championship ” of Latin American street food.
