If I ask people about Bolivian cuisine, at first many seem puzzled. “You mean the chicken, rice and potatoes?” is usually the response. And fair enough, this country has its share of poultry in many forms, typically served with at least two starches and sometimes bread (ouch to all the carb watchers out there!). But the foods in Bolivia are as rich and varied as its landscape and culture. The soups and stews are a shining point for the gastronomy found here.
