Cuisine   -   Bolivian Recipes

The cuisine of Bolivia is suited to the high, cold climate in the altiplano: lots of peppers, aji, and food served picante, spicy hot, although you can request medio picante or poco picante for medium or less hot. In the altiplano, cuisine relies on carbohydrates and protein from potatoes and meats, plus trout, trucha, from Lake Titicaca. In the lowlands, freshwater fish, vegetables, fruits are more popular.

My Mother's Bolivian Kitchen: Recipes and Recollections 
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.

A Concise History of Bolivia  -   Herbert S. Klein
In its first Spanish edition, Herbert Klein's A Concise History of Bolivia won immediate acceptance within Bolivia as the new standard history of this important nation. Surveying Bolivia's economic, social, cultural, and political evolution from the arrival of early man in the Andes to the present, this current version brings the history of this society up to the present day, covering the fundamental changes which have occurred since the National Revolution of 1952 and the return of democracy in 1982. These changes have included the introduction of universal education and the rise of the mestizos and Indian populations to political power for the first time in national history. Containing an updated bibliography, A Concise History of Bolivia remains an essential text for courses in Latin American history and politics.
