Flavour is for me much more than just a taste and smell. It involves more – my territory, my memories – all this has to blend with food and atmosphere.
The flavour takes me to the trips and outings with the group of Mater Iniciativa – to the highlands, to the aromas, the harvest of potato, the underground cooking, the moments when roots and tubers blend with aromas of the altitude herbs.
Flavour of roots, vegetable roots, when they are harvested and cooked with Andean herbs, the whole process is a flavour that brings up memories and great emotions.
Part of the flavour is the experience of tasting, testing and sharing with the local people – the entire experience.
Flavour is lived before and after …
