Asado Dining

Asado is a broad Spanish term not only for a range of barbecue techniques, but also describes the social event of having or attending a barbecue; food is placed on grills and lowered over the embers of special applewood chips where it acquires its distinct smoked taste by absorbing the aromas and sealing in the flavours... Asado dishes are typically no-nonsense, rustic and honest, yet colourful and fiery - you could say the culinary equivalent of the Argentine Tango! Entertaining family and friends at mealtimes is essentially how Asado dining culture emerged in Argentina and, the life-affirming feelings of togetherness it creates is why it has become so popular around the world. Its rich cuisine benefits from many influences; mainly the diverse immigrant nationalities that have helped it shape and evolve throughout its colourful and, often chequered history.
