I hadn't signed up for this. A small corner cafe in the Bolivian city of El Alto and a steamy bowl of soup plonked down in front of me. I think the owner of the restaurant had taken pity on the perspiring gringo seated in his establishment and included only a modest phallus in my portion. Now all I had to do was give it a try. Spoon at the ready, I chickened out on first attempt after the diner at the next table explained — with a certain relish — that the particular tint to the soup was thanks to the bullish offering.
Second attempt and I managed to get it into my mouth. The taste wasn't unpleasant but the gristly texture did for me. But among foreigners the country is hardly feted as a gastronomic mecca. Visitors tend to come for the scenery. As for the grub?
Forget it. In recent years, that job in Latin America has gone to neighbouring Peru, with is delicate flavours and high profile celebrity chefs such as Gastón Acurio , who is due to open a London restaurant later this year.
In April, the chef-turned-business mogul opened Gustu restaurantgustu. I'm here on a gastronomic tour to see if this could happen. It is packed with vendors and punters, and the view is stunning in this city of almost impossible gradients. I'm standing in the city centre, 3,m above sea level, and I feel I am almost touching the low-hanging fluffy clouds that stretch to the horizon.
The market is flooded with colour. I have managed to steal Mauricio López, one of the Gustu sous chefs, to explain the weird and wonderful produce on display: fruits and vegetables I simply didn't know existed, alien shapes and forms, undiscovered tastes.
