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.

When a show about Mexican food kicks off with a chef like Enrique Olvera welcoming you to watch, you should probably do just that.  In the latest episodes from National Geographic Spanish’s web series, One Wey, host Alonso “Pata de Perro” gives us a tour of some of the best restaurants the capital city has to offer, from traditional tortilla shops to fine dining at Pujol.  Not unlike the other gastronomic capitals of the world like New York, Lima, and Tokyo, sifting through the incredible variety that city like Mexico City has to offer can be daunting.  Watch these two episodes (Episode 1, here; Episode 2, here), though, and you’ll at least have a fighting chance.  If Mexico City’s not in your travel plans in the near future, be warned–you’re going to be hungry.  From fresh tostadas covered in beans and cheese, to the pinnacle of modern dining that’s put the country on a variety of world’s best lists,  Mexico City has it all.  Provecho.
