Extreme Cuisine with Jeff Corwin

Hosted by Jeff Corwin

Peru

Jeff Corwin heads south of the border - way, way south to Peru. On the northwest shore, Jeff meets Peru's "fisherman of the year," and in small reed boats learns how to fish for his supper, and makes fisherman's cebiche right on the beach. Two miles high in Cusco, Jeff peels naturally freeze-dried potatoes - with his feet! He travels to a small mountain town to enjoy the gastronomical joy of cuy (guinea pig), an essential source of protein for the Andean people, and his South American adventure culminates by building and cooking a traditional Pachamanca, an earth oven feast - the traditional way to celebrate the Andean new year.
