CUBAN FOOD STO­RIES: A MO­VIE TO LICK YOUR FIN­GERS

Excelencias Gourmet - - Habana 500 -

When Aso­ri So­to ca­lled up with the idea of ma­king a do­cu­men­tary about Cuban food, I sus­pec­ted that it would be a ma­te­rial jam-pac­ked with stig­mas. Ho­we­ver, I was wrong. Aso­ri drea­med of a dif­fe­rent do­cu­men­tary film. He wan­ted to del­ve in­to the tas­tes of his child­hood th­roug­hout the is­land. Ten years had go­ne then by sin­ce he had left Cu­ba and his re­turn broo­ked no furt­her de­lay.

Th­rough ni­ne chap­ters, this au­dio­vi­sual re­veals the se­cret in­gre­dients of Cuban cui­si­ne, the li­fe of un­for­get­ta­ble peo­ple, the fla­vors and aro­mas of a country. A trip in search of the tas­tes of Cu­ba put us aloof from a sta­tic and re­pe­ti­ti­ve vi­sion, and brought us to un­ra­vel a world we didn’t know.
