The culinary arts, as old as mankind, offer a lifetime of exploration. They are a gift from previous generations to the present, and they cannot be “mastered” by anyone. Even the most celebrated chefs, of any given era, only know a fraction of what is possible in the kitchen and lesser still of the infinite pathways an ingredient may travel to reach it.
To focus too much on what ‘s cooking today, what is commercially viable or successful, what’s accepted as normal, or even state of the art, is to risk losing sight of the enormity of our culinary history…indeterminably greater than we realize, much of it written in anonymity, much more having faded from view.
At Guerrera, we choose to resist this shortsightedness and strive to re-discover and preserve those disappearing arts…those vanishing traditions…those gifts worth fighting for.
