Cocina Sin Fronteras with Virgilio Martinez at El Baqueano

The latest chef to pop up as part of the Cocina sin Fronteras sequence had naturally packed some ingredients typical of his native Peru with him. Tumbo fruit and chonta palm shoots as well as some silvery arcilla chaco clay made the cut, before he flew to Buenos Aires to cook a one-off dinner.
