Snapshots from Argentina: More Than Malbec in Mendoza

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 3 comments

When I say Argentina, you probably think Malbec, and there's definitely a reason for Argentinian Malbec's popularity. On my recent visit to Mendoza, I did see Malbec everywhere I looked, and I tasted some delicious examples. But there is much more to Argentina than Malbec. What should drink if you're interested in exploring the rest of Argentinian wine? Here are a few other grapes to look out for, and some bottles to seek out, plus some snapshots of the vineyards and many, many varieties of empanadas. More

El Cuartito: Serving Pizza to Buenos Aires Since 1934

Slice Carey Jones 17 comments

Argentina may be known for its steak, but if I had to name another classically Argentinian food, it'd be pizza. El Cuartito, in the Buenos Aires barrio of Recoleta, is one of the oldest pizzerias in the city, founded in 1934; and, according to my tour guide for the week, it's also one of the best. More

Carey Jones 10 comments

A few weeks ago, in this post on food souvenirs, I mentioned that I'd brought back from Argentina a few packs of dulce de leche Oreos. Sadly, they proved disappointing, not tasting like dulce de leche in the slightest. So we took matters into our own hands. More

Francis Mallmann's Grilling Tips

Lizy Yagoda 5 comments

"Fire was a constant part of growing up for my two brothers and me, and the memories of that home continue to define me." This week's grilling tips come from Francis Mallmann, an Argentinian chef distinguished by his enthusiasm for fire in cooking. In his book, Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way, he describes the ways in which fire is essential to Argentinian identity: "I was through with the fancy sauces... I wanted to create a cuisine based on my Andean heritage. My cuisine became, for want of a better word, barbaric in its attempts to achieve the pinnacle of flavors through the use of fire, whether the massive heat of a bonfire, or the slow steady warmth of dying...

Buenos Aires Is a So-So Food City

Lizy Yagoda 11 comments

According to Terrence Henry of The Atlantic Food Channel, Buenos Aires leaves much to be desired in terms of food and flavor. He notes that most restaurants use wood-fired grills, which he thinks blanket all foods with similar flavors.

It should have a connection to its seasons and soil (or sea, as the case may be). It should be a place... More
