Carola Rivero Quiroga was born in Bolivia, Cochabamba, She learned how to make her delicious desserts working alongside her family making a variety of pastry breads. and cakes of many flavors, the same ones that were distributed to shops and restaurants. The family invested in a Churrasqueria and worked as a team. The bakery was named, "La Tranquera" and the beautiful lessons learned over time made me dedicate myself to doing a variety of courses in cooking and pastry making. The baking chemistry inspired her because, everything depends on the subject premium, the exact weighing of the ingredients the organization before starting. The compliance to the letter will give the good successful results and we will be able to reproduce in time.
When she arrived in this huge and unknown country, her experience and knowledge of how to bake combined with a new variety of products led to a continuation of a beautiful dream of making pastries, which fills me with great joy.
The legendary national spirit of Bolivia has a history dating back to the arrival of the Spanish over 500 years ago but has never made it stateside until now. Imported by devotee filmmaker Steven Soderbergh, Singani is made exclusively from Muscat of Alexandria grapes. Coming from vineyards that average 6,000 feet in elevation or higher, picked at optimal ripeness, the spirit is meticulously distilled to preserve the intense aromatic authenticity. Very floral with notes of vine flowers, jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and more. Beautiful texture, clean flavors, and a remarkably smooth finish with lingering acidity will leave you wanting more.
Here is the online petition we are trying to get as many signature before the end of the year to RecognizeSingani.com!
