Argentines are the world’s biggest per capita consumers of beef. And with how tasty their cow meat is, I don’t blame them (that is, until you eat so much red meat you start to get the meat sweats… but as with all things, moderation is probably the way to go). One of the best places … More We Heart Parilla al Carbon
Argentina celebrates a special day on the 29th of every month: gnocchi day. Because there’s such a big Italian influence in the city, much of what is “Argentine” food is really a mix of steak (from the pampas) and pasta (from The Boot).

As someone who is unabashedly obsessed with food, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. But not just for the food (which happens to include one of the greatest foods ever invented–mashed potatoes!), but because the holiday celebrates gathering with family and friends and being thankful–and all the better with a belly full of great … More A Very Merry Expat Thanksgiving
I kept thinking of the old (and hilariously ridiculous) Grey Poupon commercials when I went to a polo match the other weekend.
