Want a rather unexpected look inside Manq’a, the new school in La Paz for young cooks from the founders of Gustu and Melting Pot?  We’ve got one for you.  Bolivian web series PICA, which looks at trends and news for Bolivian youth, took time to head to the new school to see what Manq’a is all about.  If you can get past the wobbly camera work and hyper kids, you’ll see a room full of eager cooks excited to learn about food and what it could mean for their future.  You’ll also see Coral Ayoroa, who’s responsible for education at Gustu, Melting Pot, and now Manq’a, giving the students a lesson in flavor and technique.  If you haven’t had coffee yet, this a great way to start your morning.
