We are an English and French couple both passionate about food. Before starting our trip we both worked in big restaurants, and there was no way we were going to let living in a van stop us from cooking delicious food! It has been something we’ve had to adapt to, especially finding ways to minimising gas and water usage. Cooking with only a hob or two has also been a challenge, but we’re happy to say that after a year we have fully adapted! We’ve modified our recipes, and learnt new ones along the way, all of which, up to date, are on our site.

This llajua hot sauce is the hot sauce that you’ll see on every Bolivian table. It is traditionally served with savoury meals. It’s dead simple, fresh and delicious. It is made with huacatay leaves, a Bolivian herb with quite a unique flavour. Traditionally this sauce is made with a special hand blender, that gives the sauce a chunky blended texture. However, I was shown it can also be made with a grater, which is what we will do for this recipe.
