A celebration of the very best recipes from a passionate foodie nation which, until now, have been kept under relative lock and key.
The Food of Argentina is a rich and visual celebration of Argentinean food, filled with beautiful location and food photography that takes the reader on a gastronomic journey into a little-known cuisine that is tipped to become a global food trend.
Come inside the homes and families of Argentina and discover the best recipes this huge food-loving nation has to offer. Often influenced by their European heritage but with a distinct South American feel, home-style dishes include pastas and gnocchi, potato tortillas, and stews and casseroles, as well as sweet offerings including dulce de leche and caramel flans. Or head outside and discover the local delicacies offered in Argentina's tiny bars and eateries: chorizo rolls with salsa criolla, traditional empanadas, veal croquettes, and fruit-filled pastries. And let's not forget the famous 'mate'"a strong herbal tea that is Argentina's traditional drink.
Lose yourself in The Food of Argentina and discover a whole new cuisine from the comfort of your own kitchen.
