The Bolivia Menu
The Embassy of the Plurinational State of Bolivia have selected some Bolivian dishes to make you taste a little bit of the culinary diversity, and give you the opportunity to try products directly from small coffee and chocolate producers in Bolivia. We are excited to meet you in person to serve our dishes that are part of our culture and traditions and dishes with high nutritional value, exceptional health benefits and great nutritional content, such as quinoa, known as a super food. In fact, the United Nations General Assembly declared 2013 as the “International Year of Quinoa”, in recognition of ancestral practices of the Andean people, who have managed to preserve quinoa in its natural state as food for present and future generations, affirming it is a food to fight against hunger and food insecurity. Enjoy it!
