Bolivian foodie special in The Guardian, win a Peruvian cooking masterclass
Today’s Guardian has a full-page article about HighLives’ Gourmet Tour of Bolivia, which journalist Ed Stocker took a few weeks ago.
The full article (and accompanying review of Noma-linked restaurant Gustu) are online in full here so check it out. Ed gives a great account of a lot of the sights, smells and tastes of our tour.
If you are inspired by the article, contact us for more details about arranging your own trip, which can be combined with any of our other travel experiences, including visiting Peru’s more established culinary scene.
HighLives offers the Bolivia’s first-ever travel experience especially for foodies, with plenty of opportunities to taste the best of Bolivia’s native cuisine, visit top-quality producers, vibrant colourful markets and street food.
The tour showcases Bolivia’s little-known wine-growing region Tarija, which as Ed found out is also home to a booming market in fine-cured hams – a legacy of Franciscan missionaries from the 18th Century.
In celebration of our gourmet tours, I’m very excited about offering you the chance to win a cooking master class with London-based Peruvian chef Martin Morales on July 28 at his restaurant Ceviche.
