Join us and guest chef Daniela Hurtado of La Cocina VA as we explore Peruvian food and music culture from the Andes to the Pacific Coast. Hurtado will be making several dishes that illuminate the diverse food cultures in Peru including lomo saltado, papas a la huancaina, and mazamorra morada. A lover of salsa music, Hurtado will speak about the genre’s rise in popularity especially along Peru’s coast while making salsa huancaina with potatoes. In other words, we’ll be discussing "salsa con salsa."
This demo will tie into a museum-wide festival taking place on October 12, "Showcasing Latino Music, a ¡Descubra! family program", which will explore Latino musical connections from Mambo to hip-hop, pop music to reggaeton music and history and culture through hands-on activities, encounters with Smithsonian collections and curators, and musical performances.
