My name is Rommy Cornejo Holman (maiden name Rommy Cornejo Diaz!) and I am from Cochabamba, Bolivia. Cochabamba is known as the culinary center of Bolivia and is famous for its delicious traditional recipes that use nutritious natural ingredients like quinoa. My family are Quechua people and I learned to cook from my Mom when I was 5 years old and have loved cooking ever since! My family grew up very poor and our recipes were based on whatever was cheap and available but by the time I was older I was able to go to the University of San Simon to get my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Food Engineering.
I have worked in various culinary and brewing jobs ever since including Taquiña breweries, The Hofbrauhaus Brewery in Munich, Germany, a bagel factory, natural food store, cookie company, and as manager of the Sweetsers Apple Barrel. I hope to share my love of Bolivian cuisine with the world, so please dive in, ask me any questions, and enjoy this wonderful culinary tradition!
