- Add a large helping of mystery and adventure
- a soup spoon of history
- a pinch of archaeology
- a good helping of cooking, and
- just a small amount of new technologies.
- Mix all the ingredients and you will never see the food we eat today in quite the same way again.
Many of the dishes we eat today were born at a turning point in history that brought two opposing peoples together, laying the foundation stones of a culinary syncretism that would lead to a new kind of cuisine. This is a true detective story that will take us across the world: from China to Mexico, from Spain to China, from Italy to the United States. A journey through time and space, a great adventure mixing history, science, archaeology and gastronomy, where a multitude of cultures leads to many ways of sitting down at the table.
