By Patrick HiegerWhen we did a profile a couple of weeks back on three Buenos Aires cooks who are doing their part to ensure that not only Argentina’s most famous city, but Argentina itself, gets the world recognition it deserves for innovative, modern cuisine, we were really only scraping the surface of the talent pool that the port city holds. For the past few years, cooks have been stepping out of the traditional Italian and Spanish influences that, while still wildly important, don’t necessarily reflect modern trends and what Argentina as a country has to offer. A new vision is being created of what the future in Argentina can look like, and it’s pretty delicious.
In this gorgeous new video called Nueva Cocina Buenos Aires, meet a whole group of the modern Argentine cooks and restaurants that are taking new, daring approaches to reinventing this country’s legendary cuisine. There’s a lot of meat, for sure, but there’s a return to the land, to working with producers, and to saying that Argentina is much more than just a land of cattle and fire. It’s a rich land with a rich history, and a bright future. And as we mentioned in the headline, you’ll probably want to book your ticket now, because the getting is just too good. Provecho.
