Asados at the Oasis
The Argentina Asado dates back to the mid-nineteenth century. When millions of Spanish cattle roamed wild throughout the Reo de la Pampa. The Gaucho's developed a fondness for beef combined with Iamb and goat. The meats were cooked for hours over the hot coals from the wood of the Quebracho Tree. These early social gathering of family and friends has survived for generations. Today, Argentines take this "cooking with fire" to the mountains, the many city parks, or in the shelter of their backyards. You can hear the laughter as they share their beloved Asado with family and friends. Also, it's a pretty solid bet they will be serving their national beverage, "The Malbec."
The Asado Experience
An Asado is a social gathering, similar to a barbeque in The United Sates. The meat, usually beef or pork, is skewered and slowly cooked on an open flame for hours. The main dish is usually accompanied by red wine and salad.
At the Piattelli Wine Resort, we love to encourage social gatherings & meeting new friends to create wonderful memories. Enjoy!
