Once home to the Incan Empire, little is known about Bolivian cuisine outside of the country. In addition to the numerous varieties of potato, quinoa, corn and rice are important staples. Stews and soups are common, as are numerous varieties of stuffed turnovers. This unique cookbook includes 150 family recipes, designed with the American kitchen in mind. Traditional dishes, ranging from a modern recipe for chuľo, the Incan method of preserving potatoes by freeze-drying, to healthy takes on chicharron (fried pork) and yucca frita con relleno (fried stuffed yucca), will transport you to the kitchen of author Jos Sanchez-H.'s childhood. More than a cookbook, My Mother's Bolivian Kitchen is a memoir of a Bolivian childhood. Along with recipes for everything from salteľas (meat-filled pastries) and quinoa soup to picante de pollo (spicy chicken), Sanchez-H. shares many poignant childhood memories. Come to Aunt Nazaria's sixty-ninth birthday party to feast on picante de pato con chuľo (spicy duck with freeze-dried potatoes); to observe El Dia de Todos Santos (All Saints' Day), when traditional shaped breads are baked in honor of the deceased; and camping in the mountains, where the memory of his mother's food leads him home. These recollections, among others, demonstrate the importance of food in both Sanchez-H.'s home and Bolivian culture. Complete with b/w photographs, illustrations, and maps.

(Key Words: Bolivian Cookbooks, Food, Bolivia, Bolivian Cooking, Jose Sanchez-H.).
