The Dutch Barn, Owl Lodge, Lacock
The history of Argentinian cuisine is rich and diverse. The country has experienced extensive immigration over many centuries and has reaped the benefits of numerous food influences. The Italians and the Spanish are the two main European settlers to have integrated their cuisines into Argentina.
An Asado is a traditional social gathering or dinner party. Ingredients are cooked on a parilla (grill) and, as this is the land of beef, often the word meat refers to beef alone. It is the national ingredient and the country produces 5% of the rest of the world's total beef demand. It is also the largest producer of honey in South America so that makes its way into many traditional dishes and desserts.
For these two evenings, Peter Vaughan and Tom Dodd will be your asadors or parilleros. They will be serving freshly made chimichurri dressing, breads cooked in the wood fired oven, refreshing salads and, of course, Malbec wine. This will be as authentic as possible - but in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside.
We will have Andrew Hurst with yet another array of musical instruments to add to the atmosphere!
Arrive at Owl Lodge for 7.00pm - 7.20pm
Dinner commences 7.45pm - a three-course dinner at long communal tables in the Dutch barn, around the central fire pit.
