By CRAIG CLAIBORNE NEW YORK One of the Wost fascinating cookbooks to cross this desk in many a year and the author denies that It is a cookbook at all, but tather a guide to cooking is an 18-page, handtyped manual, the work of Tom Burrow of High-Land Mills, N.Y. He Is a 26-year-old architect and former Peace Corps volunteer who recently spent two years In Bolivia. The book is, ir, essence, a work of campassion for those who miht fnllnw him in missions to the flat high plains oi Bolivia. 'That was what it was where I lived," he said recently In a New York apartment, 'It's at 13,000 feet and 65 per cent of the diet Is potatoes. For meat, you can buy llama, which is tough and has to be stewed, or alpaca, which Is delicious and tender where flavor goes a cross between beef and lamb. "But meat is scarce and expensive, and there are no greens. There are small local markets where some foods are brought up by truck carrots, onions, citrus fruit and bananasbut It's hard going. "So many' young kids get Into these villages with no knowledge of how to do anything in a kitchen except open a can of beans," he added, "but you have to learn to live by your wits and yourself. That's why I wroie the book." Burrow wrote the book in an adobe hut made of mud and straw with a kitchen made of mud, plaster and cement. An amazing amount of ingenuity went into equipping his kitchen with a sink, an oven and a counter top. In "A Guide to Cooking in Bolivia for Those Who Can't Cook," Burrow writes that "the shock is serious when young people find that there are no stringbeans or peas or t-bone steaks available. "You can buy almost anything in a can," he added, "and although very unlike What mom used to make, It's not too hard to heat It up and eat It." The trouble is that what you wind up with after a tew months is a financially rubied Peace Corps volunteer. Burrow had an extensive glossary of various foods that are available, such as chanca-ca or crude brown sugar; aji, a very hot red pepper; maize-na or com flour, and canned tuna. He is quite candid about Argentinian cheese, which he finds Infinitely preferable to some well-known American brand names. And he found that with the available cheese he could make a "decent lasagne, veal parmesan (of forts), eggplant parmesan or pizza." Burrow who remembers Bolivia with affection and wants to return some day-speaks with considerable relish of some of his cooking accomplishments there, particularly his sauerbraten and various dishes made with sourdough. He has included several 'recipes for these In his book, Including biscuits, pumpernickel and English muffins which, he declares, taste just like a well-known American brand. Here are some recipes that Burrow frequently prepared' on his kerosene burner. SOIROOI'GH STARTER 1 cake or package of yeast 2 cups warm water 2 cups flour 1 tablespoon salt 1 tablespoon sugar. Sprinkle yeast Into one-half cup warm water. Let stand five minutes. Stir in remaining Ingredients and pour mixture Into a large glass or enamel-lined container. Allow the starter to stand, loosely covered, in a warm place. Stir each day with a wooden spoon. In three or four days It should have a pleasant sour odor. The starteris then ready for use. Yield: About two cups. Note: Store starter in refrigerator in a glass container with a tight-fitting top. An old-fashioned mason Jar with the glass top and rubber ring Is perfect. If you use a jar with a metal top, place a piece of strong plastic wrap under the lid to prevent rusting. Each time you use part of the starter, replace it with equal amounts of flour and water. If you do not use it for more than lu days, you should remove a cup of starter and replace It so as to keep the starter active.
