Cooking Vacations In Argentina
As the second largest country in South America, Argentina has tons to offer. The mountains of the Andes lead to the plains of Pampas, the streets of Buenos Aires give way to the plateaus of Patagonia. Although probably most known for its cattle ranches and wine production, it boasts a wonderful culinary scene that draws on its strong European influences. What could be more fun – or more characteristic – than visiting a cattle ranch for an “asado,” an outdoor barbeque featuring the country’s famed meats, from steaks to sausages? Or to put “manos a la masa” (hands to the dough) to create freshly pastas and pizzas?
Argentina also has many natural beauties to explore. The Andes mountains, including the majestic mount Aconcaugua, give way to the vineyards of the Mendoza region, which are ripe for your explorations. To the north the Iguazu falls are considered one of the world’s natural wonders. In the southeast Patagonia’s startling landscape leads toward Ushuaia, the southernmost city in the world and departure point for trips to Antarctica.
