September is Mistura season in Peru, and though I was not able to attend the famed food festival this year, I was excited to read daily news updates about the happenings. If you don’t know what Mistura is all about, check out the trailer for the documentary Mistura: The Power of Food which recently screened at the SF Latino Film Festival.
The filmmaker tells that some people have been so inspired by the film that they immediately plan a trip to Peru just to taste the food. One person that I know wants to go to Mistura next year is my dear foodie friend and photographer, Melissa, who recently attended the screening in SF. This is part of a recent conversation we had about the film and Peruvian food, which is something we talk about and enjoy eating very often.
