Just in time for the 29th--a video with a gnocchi recipe so simple, even a five-year-old can make it! I recently shot a series of technique videos, and in this one, my son Esteban teaches ME how to make Ñoquis... Continue reading

I had quite a different post planned out when I baked these tiny pan dulces. One about the thrill and warmth of the season, giving, the tradition of these yeasty sweet breads, and my two little ones just bubbling with... Continue reading

Fire is primal--the first and most basic way to cook. Since the beginning of time, it gives man the power to control his food. It is also by far (smokers, barbecues, ovens and other technology be damned) one of the... Continue reading

When I started this blog years ago, the foods of Argentina were foreign to me--I blindly tested a recipe, often without much of an idea of what the end result was supposed to taste like. After all, I was making... Continue reading

If James Bond drank Malbec instead of Martinis, he would be in this book. At first, I'll admit, I was skeptical--would I be interested in reading a whole book about the history of Argentine wine? But reading this book is... Continue reading

As the old adage goes, "patience is a virtue". Why is a patient person more virtuous than the average person? Because no one has any patience, or at least patience is something that has to be cultivated, not a natural-born... Continue reading

Aren't these emapnadas just mouth-watering? They came from a pizzeria in Buenos Aires on our last trip there, and we ate them in one sitting, while admiring the 'repulgue' code indicating what different fillings awaited us inside. Pretty clever if... Continue reading

What do you do when your sweet Argentine husband confesses that he's homesick? If you're like me, you find that food--while never being quite like the real thing--brings you pretty close to home. And having that comforting flavor of home... Continue reading

Back in 2008, when this blog was a baby idea of sharing recipes from our life in the U.S. and Argentina, I wrote about Pasta Frola. Many of the recipes I made came from my mother-in-law, Florencia's, kitchen as I... Continue reading

Americans are masters of 'small talk'. The weather, the game, politics...quipped to both strangers and friends alike in grocery store aisles or pre-school pick-up. This superficial conversation allows us to connect with our fellow man and yet remain uncommitted. In... Continue reading

So many of my favorite Argentinean recipes, however delicious, can be rather...time and labor intensive. Meaning, there is no way they are making it to the dinner table on a weeknight if I'm making it that same day from scratch.... Continue reading
