B is for Bolivia. An Audio Recording

Bolivia: London's World of Food: an A to Z

camping in Bolivia

Our A to Z journey through the world foods of London began fantastically well with a night out in an Afghan restaurant. From Central Asia we sweep now to the Andes and our next letter. B is for Bolivia. I have cycled across Bolivia twice. It’s a tough and beautiful country. I was looking forward to a hearty meal and some happy nostalgia.

This is a short audio piece I made to try to capture a sense of the Parrilladas del Sur grill. Eating Bolivian food on the Old Kent Road: this project is going to be interesting.

Here also is a challenge for my readers this year: to try to slow down your life enough to be able to pause and savour a 5 minute audio recording. It’s not in HD, there are no bells and whistles. It’s just you, the recording, and 5 minutes of calm… I mention this because I find it very difficult to stop still on a website long enough to listen to audio recordings. But I rarely regret it when I do. Let me know in the comments how you get on!


You can find much more on our London’s World of Food website. There’s photos, videos, restaurant reviews and recipes galore.

  1. Thanks for the “telling off” for me to slow down – to be honest I wouldn’t normally have bothered listening to this, but I did enjoy it.
    You’re right – 5 minutes of calm is a good thing to add to my day…

  2. I like the audio clip format. It’s very evocative. And it did induce me to take a five minute break to listen!
