Soooo, the World Cup is drawing to a close and Argentina are just playing extra time with Germany. Today is the final day of the challenge and required me to cook another meal from Argentina. We actually had 3 things today!
At lunchtime we had Choripán. These are chorizo & chimichurri rolls. These are common snacks/street food at football matches. We had chimichurri left from a couple of weeks back, and I defrosted some brioche rolls I made recently too. We had this with a Russian salad.
For tea we had an ‘asoda’ (barbecue to celebrate) and we cooked a few things, but the nod to Argentina was rump steak with chimichurri.
Then for afters we had ‘peaches with Malbec’. I was quite surprised with this when I discovered it, it really is just sliced peach with Malbec. Apparently you can use tinned or fresh, we had fresh.
So that’s the end of the challenge for me! I did find it quite hard in the middle to try and fit it around work and life, but I got there in the end. The thing that I do enjoy about these challenges is the exploration you do in to other countries and their food. Argentina really does seem to be a country that loves beef and barbecues!
