Day 2 Mendoza
Awesome Argentina and Mendoza
Stan learned to dice veges and Jean learned how to make empanadas and they put us to work. Lucas, the chef, is very savvy. He is from a wealthy family from Mendoza, studied at Hyde Park CIA and now owns 5 restaurants here and has multiple contracts w/wineries for catering. Because of Jean, we learned how to BBQ salmon and veges, vege empanadas, and he tossed the panne cottta and gave us some elegant fruit instead. Had wine throughout the experience. Learned a lot. A very popular BBQ is constructed of an old plow disc on which they put legs. It is salted and oiled w/ each use, then wiped clean. Delicious! Went into the town of Mendoza and explored the shops; every shop, no matter the product, also sells wine. Leather shops feature the finest wines!
