Sustainable Food and Farming
Purchasing goods at the local food markets means getting the freshest, healthiest and tastiest products while supporting local jobs and promoting farming tradition
Taste of authenticity
We are in
Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the most populous city of Brazil and a trade and transportation hub situated
in the generous nature of hot, tropical lowlands at 416 meters above sea level.
We were surprised by its small-town feeling and a lightly buzzing tropical atmosphere. However, Santa Cruz is the country’s business center it has kept its charming unforgettable tameness. You can see the locals chatting and relaxing seated on the main square, restaurants close for siesta and little stores sell cheap local products
The main ingredients
Bolivian cuisine represents a combination of the traditional Indigenous Aymara ingredients (corn, potatoes, and beans) and those brought by Spanish (rice, wheat and meat). The local farmers never forget to smile, even if they work really hard.

We met Monzon in #SantaCruz in #Bolivia. #7MML
An encounter with Monzon
Mario Monzon a namesake of the famous Carlos Monzon, confirms the old Roman saying “Nomen Omen”, according to which our names predict our destiny. He works as box trainer and talent scout in a small club in Santa Cruz. "Doing sports, especially boxing forge the character and gives values such as respect for opponents you fight with and ability to face losses and refuse to quit."

easy, but what we have to face now, we would have never expected!
We are in Sucre, the city of chocolate, and we have to make a serious

With nuts, almonds, quinoa, amaranto, truffle, orange or peach flavor, coconut cream or with licquer?
