Pressure Cook goes to Manaus

There’s a culinary travel show called Pressure Cook with chef and host Raplh Pagano in which he gets dropped off in an unknown location and has to make enough money by cooking to get his plane ticket back to the States.

In this particular episode, he gets dropped off in Manaus and takes on various jobs in order not to pay the penalty, which is eating the larvae of some bug. The show includes the usual, caipirinhas, Rio de Janeiro reference, broken Spanish, some naive commentary yet it also allows for a look into an area that gets little attention by the media, Manaus.
