Overview

Argentine cuisine is one of the world's best-kept culinary secrets. The country's expansive landscape includes tropical jungles, vast grasslands with sheep and cattle, alpine lakes, and glacier-studded mountains. As a result, a great variety of foods are available-game, lamb, an incredible assortment of fish and seafood, exotic fruits, and prime quality beef. This cookbook highlights recipes from Argentina's nine regions, including signature recipes from five-star chefs, the author, and other talented home chefs.

Inside are sophisticated culinary offerings like Pavita Relleno a la Criolla (Roast Turkey with Persimmon, Sausage, and Jalapeño Stuffing) and Gaspado de Cazador (Game Stew with Wild Rabbit, Partridges, Quail, and Gin), as well as home-style favorites like Gazpacho de Mesopotamia (Raw Vegetables in Chicken Broth and Fresh Lime Juice). The 190 recipes are all adapted for the North American kitchen, and a helpful section on ingredients and techniques ensures that even novice cooks will produce spectacular results. The author's introduction and commentaries throughout the book offer insight into Argentina's landscape, history, traditions, and culture. Complete with b/w photographs and illustrations.
