The Food of Argentina celebrates the very best recipes from a passionate foodie nation which, until now, have been kept under relative lock and key.

The Food of Argentina is a rich and visual celebration of Argentinian food filled with beautiful location and food photography that takes the reader on a gastronomic journey into a little-known cuisine that is tipped to become the next global food trend for food lovers everywhere. Some people may have heard of Argentinian asados - the legendary meat barbecues that are so beloved by locals, but The Food of Argentina celebrates so much more than a carnivore's dream.

Come inside the homes and families of Argentina and discover the very best recipes this huge food-loving nation has to offer. Often influenced by their European heritage but with a distinct South American feel, home-style dishes include pastas and gnocchi, potato tortillas, stews and casseroles as well as sweet offerings including dulce de leche, strudels and caramel flans. Or head outside and discover the local delicacies offered in Argentina's tiny bars and eateries: chorizo rolls with salsa criolla, traditional empanadas, veal croquettes and fruit-filled pastries. And let's not forget the famous mate - strong herbal tea that is Argentina's traditional drink and adored by locals country-wide. Lose yourself in The Food of Argentina and discover a whole new cuisine from the comfort of your own kitchen.
