4 Authentic Bolivian Cookbooks & Recipe Books

To this day, Bolivian cuisine is not popular with tourists as well as around the world. Contrary to the preconceived notions of many people (meat-centric, bland, unhygienic), the food in Bolivia is diverse and satisfying and an essential and unique part of the culture.

Unlike Brazil, Peru, or other neighboring countries, this country’s cuisine has few culinary champions. That is why no one has been able to bolster the cuisine’s name before a global audience. With a minimal number of Bolivian cookbooks on the market, we have searched hard to list these 4 best Bolivian cookbooks for you to enjoy.
