Street Food: Latin America

street food 1


Street Food on Netflix continuous its mix of exotic travelogue, characterising cultures through mouth-watering street-food, with  the program often sketching a history and sociology as context, and hanging it all on inspiring stories of underdogs who overcome, usually, but not exclusively women (there´s a lovely episode with a Japanese-Peruvian who calls himself a loser). This season is on Latin American street food. The first episode starts in Argentina with a young woman who takes over her father´s food stall but only makes a success of it when she pairs up with the woman of her life. Her family ends up accepting it all and so do the people in the market where they work. It´s pretty comfort viewing, sprinkled with lovely music, and I liked all of it very much.
