In my last post I talked about the emotions that came along with celebrating two years of travel. Now, I just want to share some of our favorite moments through photos. Also, we have a big announcement! We feel so privileged to have spent another year living out our dreams and also realizing that this is where we want to take the future too. We are super excited to announce the birth of two brand new blogs!
Over a year ago when we first visited Lima, we had an incredible opportunity to eat at one of the best restaurants in the world. Astrid y Gaston is more than just a restaurant but an experience in and of itself. The tasting menu I had back then, was one of the top meals of my life and I wondered if it could ever be matched. You can read about my experience here.
Recently, the restaurant has moved to a new location and the space matches the food in terms of fantastically beautiful. Casa Moreyra is a historical house (the likes of where people like San Martin, yes-that San Martin, once lived). It's absolutely breathtaking and the tasting menu we tried was even better than our last experience.
Well no, not an actual, real baby. But we are pleased to announce the birth of our new idea! Together with the help of www.comosur.com, and us here at ‘infusedexposures’, we have combined forces to bring you ‘Comosur Docs’. These are basically brief documentary, narrative-type pieces that detail places we have visited (mostly food-focused). We’ve kept up this blog for almost two years now and thought it was high time that our readers get a chance to actually come along with us on some of our adventures.
Keep in mind we are not experienced at video making nor are we professionals. We are shooting with equipment not made for this and have no budget or lighting. It’s just Laurent and I going off doing our thing and recording and editing it. And we want to share that with you.
We aspire to get better through experience and we hope to give you a little taste of some of the things we have been doing on this continent!
Our most recent video was about our visit to Salamina, Colombia and details how sugar cane gets turned into a product called panela.
In Colombia we also had an opportunity to visit a coffee farm in Salento where we got to witness the entire coffee-making process from bean to cup! So we made a two-part video about that.
Our next two videos will feature hot restaurants in Lima, Peru. One of these places is rated as one of the best in the world and the other is a newcomer that’s destined to be on that list as well. Stay tuned! Big things are happening!
