By the size of the line to get into Masticar 2014, it was easy to see that it was going to be a great event. Throughout the four days of the event, the waiting time to get into the grand pavilion was no less than an hour, and many gave up even trying when they realized that the line stretched around the corner. Nevertheless, those who remained committed to their goal didn’t regret it.

Inside the festival, the creme de la creme of Argentine cuisine got together amongst 36 different stands. Besides eating well, those who managed to get in had the chance to be waited on by famous chefs and to take advantage of chatting them up. The fair also brought together 75 producers from the region who bought the freshest, most representative products of Argentina, making for the best example of the fair’s theme “Comer Rico Hace Bien.” For those interested, there was also a program full of conferences led by those who know their way around a pot.
