Culinary Tour 2010 • Argentina Round-Up

February 3, 2010 by Joan Nova in Culinary Tour Around the World, Events | 15 Comments

Don’t cry for us Argentina. We make your food in our kitchens too.

I knew Argentina was going to be a popular stop on this tour. Here’s some delicious dishes from food blogger kitchens around the world. They come from New York, Virginia, Missouri, British Columbia, London, Rome, Lake Garda and South Florida. You’ll be in for some good storytelling, great food and eye candy photos when you visit their blogs. Links provided. Come take a look…

Erica of My Colombian Recipes made an authentic matambre. It’s a stuffed and rolled flank steak that is so popular in Argentina.

Amy + Johnny of We Are Never Full in NY are big fans of Argentine food. They made a no-bake dulce de leche dessert called chocotorta.

Natasha of 5 Star Foodie in VA made a cazuela gaucho (chicken stew) which has its origins in the Jewish community that migrated from Russia in late 1800s.

Sari of Cooking Your Dream is from the Czech Republic but currently lives in London. She made panqueques de dulce de leche.

Val of More Than Burnt Toast in Canada wove another great tale and treats us to some home-made gnocchi in tomato sauce.

Jim of Our Family Food Fight in So FL made baked empanadas with savory shredded chicken filling.

Natalia of Gatti Fili e Farina in Rome brings us alfajores, the traditional Argentine ‘cookie’.

Arrollado con Dulce de Leche comes from from Robin of the Big Red Kitchen in VA.

Lara of The Lab in Missouri joined us for the first time. She posted a few photos that show the scenic beauty of Argentina and a recipe for alfajores cookies.

Oz of Kitchen Butterfly in London made 2 varieties of empanada and accompaniments: a red wine pastry with manchego cheese filling and home-made quince paste (membrillo) and whole wheat beef-filled with chimichurri sauce.

Cinzia of CindyStar in Lake Garda, IT made beautiful chocolate and white alfajores.And, in case you missed it, FOODalogue presented a full Argentine family dinner. Most readers seemed to like this colorful side dish of Burnt Carrots with Baked Goat Cheese on a parsley and arugula salad.

    What I like about this round-up of Argentinian food is that the array of dishes by and large skipped over the stereotype of beef, steaks, beef and more steaks in Argentinian cuisine.

  13. Love seeing the different dulce de leche recipes…..and I have a jar of microwave dulce de leche in the fridge!
