We started the evening off with a Quinoa salad, a quintessential ingredient originating from South America. I was introduced to this super food a few years back, and haven't stopped eating it since. Aside from it being healthy, it has a nutty taste, and soft yet fluffy texture which can hold up to a variety of ingredients, flavors, and textures. Chef Norberto prepared the red quinoa, which is heartier than than the white. With earthy and citrusy under tones, this was a nice start to the meal, and a perfect salad to enjoy in an outdoor setting (no knives required).
Chef Norberto as well as his team were bursting with pride when presenting this item, Choripan con Salsa Criolla. The beef sausage (Chorizo) is made in-house and paired with the onion relish (Salsa Criolla) which makes for the perfect outdoor festival food. The crusty bread used to make this sandwich brought all these elements together for me, no wonder people all over Buenos Aires line up street side for these tasty little treats.
If anyone has had the pleasure to enjoy the Cabrito Asado con Papa Morada de los Andes, then you know it's quite a spectacle to see. Roasted whole on a spit, time and meticulous effort is taken into cooking this baby goat to perfection. Paired with some pickled peppers and purple potatoes this is one of Asado's signature dishes.
