A Little Herb and Spice for Starters – Chimichurri and Bread

chimichurri

Chimichurri has such a wonderful blend of herbiness and spice. My recipe is for green chimichurri, which is less spicy than its red counterpart.

While chimichurri is generally used in Argentina for marinating the meats or going on the meats at the end, it’s a beautiful dipping sauce as well!

This uncooked fresh sauce can be made in no time at all. I’ve kept things simple by serving it with bread for dipping.

A Main that’s Crispy and Tender – Chicken Milanesa

Chicken milanesa with fries

I love this Milanesa recipe, as it’s so diverse. My recipe is for a crispy breaded chicken cutlet, but you can also use other meats, like pork or veal.

Milanesa brings some classic European cooking to Latin America. Complete with crispy French fries, lemon wedges, and a green salad, this is an easy dish that’s so tasty.

Finish with a Rich and Creamy Dessert – Copa Don Pedro

Copa Don Pedro

Copa don Pedro is a little Argentinian secret that delivers a rich, creamy, and boozy mouthful! It’s similar to Italian affogato and consists of vanilla ice cream, espresso, and whiskey. My recipe tops it with caramelized walnuts for an Argentinian treat that looks classy, tastes rich, and is so simple to make.
