Summary
Join world-renowned chef José Andrés on an exploration of the most unknown island in the Caribbean, Haiti. As a chef and humanitarian, José is convinced we can change the world through the power of food, and understand a culture by exploring what, when and how its people eat. José experiences the authentic traditions and rituals of Haiti, from making cassava bread to midnight gatherings with vodou priests. He dives deep into Haiti's natural beauty, taking you to ancient waterfalls and untouched coastlines. He hunts for land crabs and mythical mushrooms in its lush forests, and tastes local specialties on the bustling streets of Port-Au-Prince. We learn the history behind Haiti's incredible historic sites like the Citadel and tour a 150-year-old rum factory. Follow José into the heart of this mysterious island; through its unique cuisine discover the history and culture, and see into the future, of a proud and rarely understood people
