The platform explores Argentine cuisine from three perspectives:
The characters behind the food. From how the chefs are revolutionizing Argentine cuisine, how are the butchers of the neighborhoods of Buenos Aires to the honey producers in Santiago del Estero, in this section the stories of all those people who are part and give identity to the gastronomic culture of the country are made known.
Cities and their landscapes. From Jujuy to Tierra del Fuego, the collection is a gateway to explore the local cuisine in all its diversity and discover the characteristic flavors of each region. This includes postcards, traditions and flavors of the Atlantic country, as well as the history and tradition of the Argentine plain, a journey through the Andean territory and a tour of the entire Coast.

Thus, this section presents classic desserts such as homemade flan (one of the favorites of Argentines), a journey through the origins of the empanada, the Creole tradition of the field warehouses and how the elaboration of preserves shines again in the local cuisine.
