Argentina Cuisine and Food




        Most Argentines eat well. Their diet emphasizes meat, especially beef. Argentines prefer beef to fish, chicken, or lamb. Some Argentines eat beef at all meals.
       The people especially enjoy barbecues, such as asado con cuero, in which beef is roasted in its hide over an open fire. Other popular dishes include pucheros (stews of chicken or other meat with vegetables) and empanadas (pastries stuffed with meat or seafood, eggs, vegetables, and fruit).
       Italian settlers introduced spaghetti and other pastas into the Argentine diet. The English introduced tea time, a custom many Argentines observe as they pause for a cup of tea and a snack in the afternoon.
       The national beverage of Argentina is mate, a tea brewed from the dried leaves of a native holly tree. Mate is traditionally sipped through a straw from a gourd. Soft drinks have become increasingly popular. Argentines also enjoy the many fine local wines.

Crillo De Pollo
This chicken and vegetable soup is an Argentinean classic. It is as thick as a stew and as creamy as a bisque. What makes it more delicious are fresh ingredients like onions, bay leaves, chicken stock, russet potatoes, arrowroot, and cilantro-- a traditional argentinean recipes.


Chimichuri
An Argentine asado or barbecue is not authentic without this delicious marinade called chimichuri. It is similar to a multi spiced vinaigrette and is given an earthier tone with the addition of saffron. Usually served with poultry or shellfish.
