Lo de Beto in Cañuela, Buenos Aires Agentina

Ask any Argentinean(this one included) about where to find the best asados, and the answer will always be the same, either at home or a parrilla by the country side. The reason for this, is the fact that a good asado requires time, lots of it, and in a restaurant setting this is very hard to achieve.  Imagine yourself going to a restaurant and having to wait for 4 hours for this one dish to be prepared for you.... probably not the most ideal scenario. About 50 kilometers SW away from the city of Buenos Aires in the city of Cañuelas on  route 205, there is this place called "Lo de Beto"  (coordinates: 35.03S, 58.75W) They have one of the...

Reflections of 2018

2019.As I look back on 2018, different thoughts come to mind... To go somewhat, in chronological order, I came back late November of 2017 after recording Masterchef Latino.

Smorgasburg Los Angeles, BBQ day #2. Serving Argentine Asado in stripes(tira de asado), freshly made chimichurri, matambre a la pizza, chorizo and morcilla.

May 27, 2018 - SIPA + How is Argentine asado different to US bbq?

How is Argentine asado experience different to US style bbq?   Let me start with how they are similar, because in the end, that is what really matters. Fire and meat, there is a combination of that in every culture, every single one. The goal of a bbq/asado is the same everywhere, (besides eating) is to connect people. There is something primal about standing in front of the fire while you watch whatever you are roasting cook. Maybe it is the flames dance, may be it is the smell, and your salivating mouth. If you are roasting someone, chances are you are not alone. Grilling is about community, it's about coming together and celebrating each other's company.
