Celebrate the Flavors of Argentina: A Wine and Food Pairing


Fried empandas 002

Fried Empanadas are just the beginning.

Let's call them a gateway food….

On Thursday, Jan. 24, I'm partnering up with sommelier Ashley Vaughters to present an evening of tastes of Argentina–beginning with fried cheese empanadas and a sparkling Argentine wine, followed by a Torrontes with fish in a spicy Mar Del Plata sauce; a Pinot Noir with bruschetta a la Provenzal (mushrooms and ham); a young Malbec with gnocchi and tuco sauce; an aged, oaked Malbec with steak and chimichurri sauce; and a late-harvest Torrontes with alfajores, the classic Argentine sandwich cookie filled with dulce de leche. This is truly a special evening!  I hope to see you there for fun, flavor and wonderful information~use the link above to register.

  2. Excelente. I just found your blog and I love it, it’s simple yet super useful. I’m going to visit it really often, specially the vegan section since I’m thinking about going vegan. Saludos desde Buenos Aires, Argentina.
