Back in August, we told you about the team behind Cocinando Sudamérica, the project of a small team of South American natives and a couple of New Zealanders, that sought to explore the variety of cuisines and culinary traditions throughout South America.  After months of traveling, learning, and editing the incredible amount of footage they’d gathered, the first episode is ready to premiere. The journey promises to be epic.

In preparation of the show’s premiere, the team has released a small trailer.  Throughout their time on the road, they logged more than 40,000 kilometers and 800 hours on the road, spending all of their combined savings.  If the footage is able to bring to life even half of the enthusiasm that the participants had in creating the show, it could make for the most exciting program of the year.  Cocinando Sudamérica will show on Sundays at 16:30 on Canal 13C.  We know where we’ll be on Sunday.
