At the heart of Argentine cuisine is the love of beef. Argentina is famous for its high-quality grass-fed beef, and the country has a long lasting ¨asado¨ tradition. “Argentine asado” are legendary gatherings where delicious cuts of meat, such as beef ribs, sausages, and tender filets, are cooked over low fire or on hot charcoal grills. The “Argentine asado” places an emphasis on simplicity that allows the natural flavors of the meat to shine.
The Argentine culinary panorama goes beyond delicious meats. Argentina is also known for its exceptional wines. The country's unique terroir, with its sunny days, cool nights and mountainous terrain, provides the perfect conditions for vinifera grapes to flourish. Argentine wines are famous for their rich flavors, smooth texture and robust character. Such wines combine exceptionally well with the country's roasted meats, enhancing the gastronomic experience and elevating flavours to new heights.
