Tambobamba "Nuevo Latino Cuisine" is named after a small town in Peru. In ancient South America, the Incans sent highly-trained runners called "chasquis" to deliver messages and goods. To connect their empire, the Incans created 14,000 miles of paths and roads through the mountains from Ecuador to Chile. Chasquis would run hundreds of miles over these rugged routes, stopping at small inns called "tambos" which served as meeting and relay points. By handing off a message from runner to runner as a relay, chasquis could deliver an urgent message nearly a thousand miles in less than a week.
