Bolivian cuisine

Bolivian cuisine stems mainly from the combination of Spanish cuisine with traditional native Bolivian ingredients, with later influences from Germans, Italians, Basques, Croats, Russians, Poles, due to the arrival of immigrants from those countries. The three traditional staples of Bolivian cuisine are corn, potatoes and beans. These ingredients have been combined with a number of staples brought by the Spanish, such as rice, wheat and meat, such as beef, pork and chicken.






Enjoying lunch in a restaurant in Potosí downtown; I would prefer beef to chicken and more potatoes to rice... but that's traditional Bolivian cuisine and is completely fine as it is :-) ...
