HighLives Holidays is offering its first gourmet tour to Bolivia to include the second venture by pioneering Danish chef Claus Meyer, whose first restaurant was Copenhagen’s Noma, voted the world’s best restaurant for the past three years.
Meyer hopes his Gustu fine-dining restaurant will follow Noma’s lead to put Bolivia on a path to its own culinary development by sourcing ingredients only from within its borders.
HighLives has crafted an eight-day experience for adventurous food-lovers to explore Bolivia’s little-known wine-growing region, the vast salt flats at Uyuni and the high Andes plains where the super-grain quinoa has been cultivated for centuries.
Visitors then tour the vibrant markets of the high-altitude capital La Paz, which presents unique challenges to Gustu chefs to adapt to an atmosphere where water boils at just 80 degrees Celsius.
The journey rounds off with a spectacular 15-serving meal at Gustu, the centrepiece of the non-profit Melting Pot Foundation, which aims to train local chefs and develop employment opportunities for local young people.
HighLives can provide extended stays in Bolivia or shorter version of this tour, including a gourmet tour of La Paz or dining reservation at Gustu.
