Coffee Time

It is coffee time in Eastern Bolivia (Camiri, Santa Cruz) and a perfect cup of coffee goes with Masaco. There are alternatives to the traditional recipe. It could be mashed “yuca” (manioc) stuffed with cheese or chunks of fried pork. It could also be made of mashed “platano” (yellow ripe plantains) stuffed with cheese or chunks of fried pork. All these variations are mouth-watering!

I have been blessed to be a frequent guest at hermana Gloria’s home. She is the secretary of the Christian School, but her gastronomic abilities are done with the same proficiency of her secretarial duties and with excellent taste. I have learned many Bolivian dishes and cooking tips from her. When she is not behind the desk and tidying up the office, she is in the kitchen preparing foods you don’t want to miss!

  1. ¡Qué linda y tierna se ve la hermana Gloria! Mujeres como ellas, son una bendición en la iglesia del Señor, porque vienen siendo como un oasis, dentro de este sequedal que el mundo pone.
    ¡Hmmmmm! hiciste que se me antojaran esas ricuras. Pídele a la hermanita las recetas y las pones aquí 🙂
    Saludos, querido Andrés.
