The Grills of Argentina

Argentina’s identity is a unique blend of Latin American indigenous traditions and European influences, so you can begin to imagine how uniquely this blend has impacted their food culture too. The way to Argentina’s heart is through its asados, or barbecue like grills in English. So this week is all about beef: bavette and picanha steaks, and chimichurri sausages.

WHEN: Live-streamed at 7:30pm on Thursday 20th May (can cook anytime after or Friday 21st May)
PRICE: £65 for two people (including delivery)

Ryan's destination notes

“Choosing Argentina as the next stop on the Tour instantly transported my palate with the flavours of rare steak and herb-packed sauces. I knew this needed to be all about the meat as the famous Asados dominate so much of the core gastronomic culture over there. We are really championing some incredible beef cuts from London butchers HG Walter, their meat is sublime and we’re even making our own chimichurri sausages as part of the menu. I’m so excited to explore Argentinian cuisine with everyone at home, don’t get me started on that PUDDING! I’m going to let my latest ‘Ryanism’ speak for itself here. But it’s good, people, it’s seriously good.”


On the menu

Mojo verde, chimichurri, milk caramel… we are salivating over this menu. This cook-along is a party for all the senses, celebrating everything from powerful steaks to garlicky, herby verde. By the end you’ll be the master of steak, have whipped up your very own shiny meringue and frankly, will never want to cook potatoes another way again.
