We are pleased to present delicacies from the Argentina. Argentinian food is both diverse and distinctive. Every corner of Argentina offers a vast array of culinary delights and has been influenced by many different cultures, including Mediterranean, Italian and Spanish.

The Argentinians have the reputation for their love of eating. Social gatherings are commonly centered on sharing a meal. Sunday family lunch is considered the most significant meal of the week, whose highlights often include asado or pasta.

The term asado itself refers to long strips of flank-cut beef ribs. Popular items such as Chorizo(pork sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), chinchulines (chitterlings), mollejas (sweetbread), and other parts of the animal are also enjoyed.

The most common condiment for asado is Chimichurri, a sauce of herbs, garlic and vinegar. Unlike other preparations, Argentines do not include chili in their version of chimichurri. Tango, the music and lyrics (often sung in a form of slang called lunfardo), is Argentina’s musical symbol.

 I hope you enjoy this tour of flavors and culture,
