Yantar: The Cooking Show Inspired by The Plague

Yantar is one of the three web series that are part of The Plague’s transmedia universe, a Movistar+ original production. Daniel del Toro, known for participating in MasterChef, is the host of this cooking show. In each episode, Daniel teaches the protagonists of The Plague how to make updated traditional recipes from the 16th century so they can be enjoyed in the 21st century.

Based on the original cookery book “Arte de cocina, pastelería, bizcochería y conservería”, written in 1611 by the Philip II of Spain’s chef, Francisco Martínez Motiño, Yantar shows us how was the food in the 16th century: which were the most consumed products and how they were made back then. In every social and cultural aspect, the Renaissance age in Seville was marked by the contrasts: between the social classes and between people that came from different places all over the world. Of course, this was also reflected in the food. Social class determined the kinds of food each person had access to: the lower classes ate vegetables, fruits and legumes, while the meat was the most common food between the higher classes. Besides, commerce with the New World brought along new products that transformed Seville and Europe’s cuisine.

In Yantar, the foodies can learn how to update the traditional Seville recipes from back then, like tuna stew, partridge soup or apricot dried fruit cake. All of these are spiced with anecdotes about the food in 16th century Seville and curiosities about The Plague’s characters that will satisfy history lovers and fans of the Plague alike.
