Latin America Files - Volume 2

We've compiled the best of Anthony Bourdain's Latin America trips in The Latin America Files - Volume 2, in which he further explores Brazil, Uruguay and Ecuador. Tony visits Belem, Brazil, a city located at the mouth of the Amazon river, to begin his journey. At the Ver-o-peso market, he meets up with Felipe, a local food enthusiast, and chef Oliveira de Ofir, an expert on indigenous Amazonian cuisine. Tony samples many new fruits, including jambu, a flower Tony likens to cocaine for its numbing effects. Taking shelter from the onslaught of rain, Tony settles in at the home of Chef Ofir, who has prepared a delicious meal that includes tucupi, a yellow broth made from cassava. After learning of Bourdain ancestral roots in Uruguay, Tony and his brother Chris head to the small country to try and connect with their family. Along the way, they encounter a plethora of grilled meats at Montevideo's Mercado del Puerto and enjoy a traditional home-cooked meal at an estancia owned and run by a family that emigrated from Canada. There, they learn the value of taking your time to enjoy life. Chef Francis Mallman has found the perfect way to do that in the tiny village of Garzon, opening a popular restaurant that specializes in an old world way of cooking foods over fire. Ecuador may be one of the hidden gems of the gastronomic world. Tony meets with local chefs and rock bands that help him sift through meat skewers, penis soup, fish stew, and the many street food stalls that Ecuador has to offer.
