El suplemento especial de comida del diario La Nación, Bocados, me invitó para ser su Food Hunter invitado y recomendar a sus lectores ocho lugares diferentes para desayuno, almuerzo y cena, mezclandolo con lo nuevo, lo clásico, lo contemporario y lo barato. Aqui esta la posta (en castellano). LAB. Tostadores de Café Aunque nací en un […]
Masticar, the country’s most hyped food fair and overall edible love fest, saw over 110,000 people who came out for the ultimate Palermo gorging orgy (gorgy?). While many chef groupies flocked to take selfies with Masterchefs, the real celebrity action was going down in the mercado, where 80 producers from 19 provinces showed off their […]
Finding a great restaurant in Recoleta can sometimes be a challenge, but this classy corner spot quickly became one of my lunchtime favorites in the neighborhood.

It’s a general theme that is setting a new tone for the future way Buenos Aires dines: cooks and chefs as owners, involved in small […]
It was a date which will live in infamy. I woke up early overlooking Monaco’s crystal blue Mediterranean sea, hopped on a bus winding through the hills of the Côte d’Azur, stopped off in Italy for an espresso, then wandered across the border by foot into the south of France to munch on a croissant and roam around […]
CHOCHAN HAS SHUTTERED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICES. PIG TEAR :( There was a day when I wasn’t allowed to eat pork. Bacon, pork belly, ham, sausages, ribs, chops, salami, and a whole wonderful world of the other white meat remained unkosherly off-bounds in my reform Jewish household. But my fascination for the oinking bottom feeder remained strong, and like […]
Ever wonder what Messi and the Argentine fútbol team eat? Well C5N has us covered….
