More than a cookbook, My Mother’s Bolivian Kitchen is a memoir of a Bolivian childhood. In addition to a comprehensive collection of Bolivian recipes, for everything from salteas (meat-filled pastries) and quinoa soup to picante de pollo (spicy chicken), Sánchez-H. shares many childhood memories. He takes the reader to his Aunt Nazarias sixty-ninth birthday party to feast on picante de pato con chuño (spicy duck with freeze-dried potatoes; to observe El Día de Todos Santos (All Saints Day) when bread is baked in honor of the deceased; and camping in the mountains where the memory of his mother’s food leads him home. These memories, among others, demonstrate the importance of food in Bolivian culture.

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.
