My Mother's Bolivian Kitchen by Jose Sanchez-H
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This book includes 150 unique recipes as well as a memoir of growing up in a culture where eating is taken quite seriously. The recipes presented in this book are easy to make and, although some of the ingredients are not readily available, the author provides substitutions to achieve similar results. Bolivian cuisine is quite distinct from that of many Latin American countries, both in preparation and ingredients. It incorporates foods developed by the Incas, such as quinoa and chuno (freeze-dried potato). Among the recipes included is a Bolivian pastry called salernas; its warm golden crush, when broken open, releases a pungent smell of exotically spiced meat, vegetables and raisins.
