A Culinary Tour Of Argentina With Black Tomato -tour of argentina

Argentina may be famous for its fine cuts of meat, but what you may not know is that this fertile country is also home to acres of fruit orchards that produce an incredible array of delicious tangy jams. (Our favourite is the delicately scented Dulce de Petalos de Rosas, which is made from locally-gathered rose petals and lemons).
Black Tomato have been very busy putting together the ultimate culinary tour of Argentina to uncover the unusual side of this elegant sun-baked South American destination by bringing to life its feast of local seasonal delights. Heres their guide for awakening your palate in Argentina.

Food is intricately woven into the fabric of Argentine culture. Arriving in the bustling heart of Buenos Aires, head straight to the district of Palermo Soho. Here youll find the legendary Caf Tortoni. This 156 year old hideout is the oldest caf in the entire country and something of an institution- it not only boasts the best coffee and cake in town but a bohemian crowd of regulars who are sure to ease you into the customs and conversation of Argentine caf society.

For a taste of rural Argentina Black Tomato recommend swapping the fast pace of Buenos Aires for the mellow city of Corrientes to get acquainted with wood-fired chip and torta frita (hand-made breads) during a one-on-one cookery lesson. The surrounding countryside is some of the most breathtaking in the country: Stand on the banks of the great winding Paran River and feel dwarfed against its epic breadth.

Venturing further into this green region, indulge your appetite and experience the unmistakable beauty of the Valle Lagoon: catch the dying light of the day aboard a private boat on this shimmering expanse of water before learning the traditional craft of making cassava bread. Enjoy it piping hot straight from the oven smothered with a selection of local meats and creamy cheeses – the fruits of your labour are bound to taste just that little bit sweeter.
For the complete Argentine experience why not wash down your home-cooked fare with a glass of fine Argentine wine from the Mendoza region.
Argentinas is a veritable feast for your senses. Explore this incredible country via your taste buds and leave with a head full of memories of stunning scenery and centuries-old recipes.

This culinary adventure is sure to broaden your culinary horizons forever.
