Cultural influences in South American food
by: Chef Noly

Dear Anonymous,
South American food has been influenced by many other countries. You will find influences from Spain, France, Africa, Italy, Portugal and China to name just a few countries of influence.

Bolivian food is typically categorized as traditional, dishes of the indigenous people of Bolivia such as Chairo, and modern cooking which has been influenced by other countries and access to additional food sources.

When I buy a cup of chantilli layered with gelatin from a Bolivian market I am eating a Bolivian dessert no matter if it was or was not influenced by the French.

If you only consider Bolivian food to be the traditional dishes of the indigenous people then you are missing out on much of the food that makes Bolivia what it is today.

Chantilli?
by: Anonymous

For your information, Chantilli is not a bolivian dessert. Although it is featured in bolivian pastries and desserts, it is French.

Recipe for School Project
by: Chef Noly

Meredith, Desserts are always a big hit. Why don't you try making chantillí. Its a light fluffy dessert that only requires a few ingredients and utensils and the best thing is you can make it right in front of your class! Here's the link to the recipe.

The phonetic pronunciation of the name of the dessert is: shawn-till-lee with the stress on the "lee".

Good luck and please return here to tell us how your project turned out.
