This small town is the perfect destination for learning the secrets of true Argentine cuisine.
Embark on a Culinary Getaway with Teresita. Guests arrive to her country-like bed and breakfast tucked among a tropical garden – the home was designed by her Pediatrician husband Raul and it is located only a short walk from all the shops and markets you will soon visit. First in this edible journey agenda is a stop at the local bakery to try some of the best sandwiches de miga, learn about the variety of masitas and the famous crispy mediaslunas.
Continue walking to the butcher's shop. If you are the foodie type of traveler, you cannot come to Argentina without visiting a butcher shop, and when guided by Teresita, the experience becomes more than just looking. You get to learn about the different cuts first hand, and meet the gracious "carniceros" (people who cut the meat).
