Salteña’s History in Bolivia

Writer Antonio Paredes Candia tells us that at the beginning of the 20th century, Mrs Juana Manuela Gorriti arrived to Bolivia from Argentina specifically from the province of Salta, who was exiled from her country by then-President Rosas, stablishing in the city of Tarija.

 

The family of Mrs. Gorriti had many needs motivated by that she began to make empanadas with broth, which were very common in European countries, the person in charge of selling them was the well-known Mrs. Manuela who by their place of origin knew her as the Salteña.

 

Little by little, this product became popular, becoming today a Bolivian tradition. Over time, people no longer remember Mrs. Manuela Gorriti but their nickname “la salteña” and it is since then that the product adopts the name that remains until today.
