It’s not his first visit – he’s done several other programs highlighting Colombia, but tonight’s episode on his new CNN show, “Parts Unknown” is definitely his best. It’s the first time I think he actually ‘got it’ and was really able to convey a real sense of Colombia to his viewers.
While his previous shows were primarily about food, and local food culture – his episodes on Colombian cuisine were always very wide from the mark.. Sure, he had the names of dishes and such – but he didn’t really bring home the feel of Colombia and it’s people.
Or that Colombian food isn’t really about intense spices, it’s about the intense and rich flavors that comes from the rich textures of the foods themselves – without overpowering curries or heavy sauces..
