Cancato: Typical dish from Southern Chile

Cancato: Typical dish from Southern Chile

Although the Carretera Austral is characterized by majestic mountains and secluded forests, the Pacific is not far away, as it is everywhere else in Chile.

A typical fish dish in this region is cancato, which in the language of the Mapuche Indians, Mapudungun, means something like ‘fried meat’. Interestingly, in the Quechua language, spoken in the Andes highlands of Bolivia and Peru several thousand kilometres away, the term has the…

Pizza time Porteño style.

Pizza time Porteño style.

Every city has its classic culinary hangouts, from snobby to gritty, from quiet to rowdy. A place where the locals go and relish and the out-of-towners stick out like a carrot nose on a snowman. Pizzeria Güerrin is one of those places in Buenos Aires. It definitely belongs to the rowdy and gritty type. Located on Avenida Corrientes, one of the busiest arteries of this city. It caters mostly to the local crowd who need a quick and tasty meal…

Gnocchi of the 29th – ñoquis del 29, what’s the story?

Gnocchi of the 29th – ñoquis del 29, what’s the story?

This was one of the questions on my mind this past trip to Argentina. Few years ago I learned from Ana that there is a tradition of eating the potato gnocchi with tomato sauce (ñoquis con tuco) on the 29th day of each month. What’s more, if you put some money under the plate then surely prosperity will come to your home. She was a bit vague about the story behind the tradition. She just remembered having gnocchi at the…

Choripan and chimichurri, my favorite Argentine quick bite.

Choripan and chimichurri, my favorite Argentine quick bite.

Recently we have entertained some guests at our home and we served one of the quintessential Argentine quick bites, choripan.

The sausage is usually grilled and served cut open like a butterfly on a small piece of bread which can also be toasted. It is commonly enjoyed as a mid-day meal with a glass of red wine or beer in any number of street…
