The Argentine Asado

An Asado is simply a barbeque, though in Argentina it is a huge part of the culture. It is their Sunday lunch; Christmas, Easter, Birthdays are all, generally, accompanied by an Asado – in fact any event that isn’t is probably not much of an event. And the Asado is not just reserved for hot […]
