Argentine cuisine is one of the world's best-kept culinary secrets. The country's expansive landscape includes tropical jungles, cast grasslands with sheep and cattle, alpine lakes, and glacier-studded mountains. As a result, a great variety of foods are available -- game, lamb, an incredible assortment of fish and seafood, exotic fruits, and prime quality beef. This cookbook highlights recipes from Argentina's nine regions, including signature recipes from five-star chefs, the author, and other talented home chefs. The 190 easy-to-follow recipes are all adapted for the North American kitchen, and a helpful section on ingredients and the techniques ensures that even novice cooks can produce spectacular results. The author's introduction and commentaries throughout the book offer insights into Argentina's traditions, history, and culture.
