Passionate Food

One of the Passions of Argentina besides Tango & Wine is the passion for BBQ, for really good recipes I recently discovered an Argentinean website, a must to visit : http://www.asadoargentina.com/

The Dos Ochos wines are perfect partners for Passionate occasions like BBQ with family and friends.
Hereunder "Entraña" a traditional Argentinean Beef recipe:
One of the least expensive cuts of meat used in an asado, entraña is what many know as the skirt steak. The cuts are exactly the same. The meat is rich in flavor and extremely juicy, but can be at times be rather chewy and tough. If you are familiar with skirt steak then you will know that it usually comes with a slightly thick layer of fat and muscle membrane; similar to what coats the cuts of vacio. Although trimming the surrounding membrane will make the meat easier on the teeth, it is typically left on. Leaving it on will help to keep the juices inside with a tasty crispy exterior.
Since this is a cut of meat, factor the amount you need with the weight of the other cuts you will be cooking so that you have half a kilo, or one pound, of meat in total per person.
A good rub of coarse salt is all that is needed for the entraña. However, a generous rubbing of chimichurri can also do wonders. The cuts are usually quite thin and therefore should be on the grill near the end along other meats that do not require lengthy times. Flip when the side facing the grill is golden and crunchy. Cooking time usually only takes about 20-30 minutes over a hot grill.

Passionate Music Instrument

The bandoneón is a free-reed instrument particularly popular in Argentina. It plays an essential role in the orquesta tipica, the tango orchestra. The bandoneón, called bandonion by its German inventor, Heinrich Band was originally intended as an instrument for religious music and the popular music of the day, in contrast to its closest cousin, the German Concertina (or Konzertina), considered to be a folk instrument. German immigrants to Argentina brought the instrument with them in the early twentieth century, where it was incorporated into the local music. Like accordions and concertinas, the bandoneón is played by holding the instrument between both hands and either pushing in or pulling out the instrument while simultaneously pressing one or more buttons with the fingers.

Behind Passionate Wines one need a passionate Wine maker

Federico Galdeano, winemaker
Enology graduate of his native Mendoza in 1988, he worked for eleven years with two top premium and sparkling wine producers before joining the Bodega for the 1997 vintage. Federico Galdeano was involved in harvests in Tuscany, Italy and in Napa Valley, California, USA. Head winemaker at a rapidly expanding company, he is responsible for enology, the quality control of products and supplies and also inter-departmental relations with the sales division. He is presently developing premium wine production in Argentina"Deciding just when to harvest is crucial. Maturity determines aroma, the alcohol content, tannins, acidity, balance and the very particular personality of Argentine wines
