What a delight to have stumbled upon Boliviancookbook.com! More recipes, please??? My parents came from Bolivia to the States back in 1958. My mother too is from Cochabamba and I’ve always said that of all the restaurants I’ve ever been to in my life, my very favorite foods are ANYTHING that my mother cook or bakes.
Could you please post more recipes? I don’t read/speak Spanish very well so it’s quite difficult for me to use a Spanish/Bolivian cookbook. Thank you for what you did post and I’m going to try making them in the next couple months. Thanks!
hi Pilar, well, you will try to do Pique Macho or Silpancho, this two dishes is typical from Cochabamba
Hi, I’m from Cochabamba an one of my favorite dish is silpancho and I already had it in my blog. I will write a recipe for Pique Macho soon! Thank you for visiting my blog!
Silpancho is my favorite too! My family is from Bolivia and I almost made my dad miss our flight because I just HAD to have another silpancho before leaving Bolivia!
Thank for for this wonderful blog. Your food looks delicious! My mother is a classic non-recipe follower, so I hope this blog helps me bring traditional Bolivian food into my American-Bolivian home 🙂 More recipes por favor!
Hola! great to find your posting of Bolivian recipes. Just visited Quillacollo, loved the food–all the different kinds of potatoes. Do you know a dish pollo al curry con calavaein (not sure if this is the correct spelling)? A friend who is going to culinary school in Cochabamba made this dish and I thought she said it was a Bolivian dish. She also made Causa which I understand is Peruvian. Looking forward to trying your recipe of Silpancho; hope you post the recipe for Pique Macho
I was looking for “Arroz a la Valenciana” ,that was a favorite of my father,how about some about how to Humintas, Quinua?
Do you have a recipe for the tamales that is in your background? I tried making this at home and it was such a fail… thank you. I love this blog.
