the buzz





Unlike other Latin American countries, Argentina’s heritage is more European than mestizo or Indian. Spanish and Italian settlers poured into Argentina from the late 19th through mid-20th century, and French, German, Swiss, and Eastern Europeans also settled in large numbers. With them, settlers brought crops and animals, finding Argentina’s vast grassland plains a veritable heaven for grazing cattle and raising corn, wheat, fruits (like wine grapes), and vegetables. Argentina produces and consumes more beef per capita than any other country in the world. Similar to the United States, Argentina prizes its romantic cowboy heritage, with images of gauchos still powerful and present in modern culture. Grilling is a major national pastime, whether at home or eating at churrascarias, grilling restaurants. With 3,100 miles of coastline along the Atlantic Ocean, fish and seafood are a large part of Argentinean cuisine and picadas (small plates of mussels, cheeses, olives, and nuts) are common to all regions.

About me:
I've always loved cooking, ever since I was a kid. I made a homemade cake by myself at 10 and was so proud. I'd much rather plan menus, look at cookbooks, and cook dinner than clean the house any day!
