SABORES SILVESTRES promotes the conservation of biodiversity, the preservation of food heritage and the promotion of Bolivian gastronomic culture through the work of an interdisciplinary group of professionals dedicated to research, understanding, conservation and sustainable transformation of products from all Bolivian ecoregions and ecosystems.
SABORES SILVESTRES seeks a deeper understanding of the Bolivian natural pantry, recognizing that by understanding and preserving products we are also respecting them and promoting a sense of pride, recognition and sustainable livelihoods for rural communities, productive associations and the indigenous peoples of Bolivia.
Disseminate knowledge about native Bolivian products, their characteristics, qualities and ethnographic significance through an open access multimedia interactive platform that places the knowledge obtained through interdisciplinary and systematic research in the hands of the general public, promoting the conservation of ancestral products and the biodiversity and ecosystems where they occur.
Sabores Silvestres contemplates a deep and interdisciplinary view of Bolivian biodiversity, food heritage and gastronomic culture, from the cultural and ceremonial significance to the ancestral techniques and knowledge about native products of the different Bolivian ecosystems, seeking to tell the story behind each product, investigate its origins and uses, thereby rescuing and preserving their true value as the ancestral legacy of Bolivian gastronomic culture.
