Santa Cruz, Patagonia (more)
Awesome Argentina and Mendoza

The first night we had a private dinner in a club, opened just for us. The wife cooked all the courses which were organic, fresh from the sea, butcher or garden. They are known for their haddock and actually have an annual haddock festival. Jean had a special vege dish and Stan the haddock served 2 ways. The vinos were syrah (jean) and a chardonnay-semillion (stan). These folks also make their own liquors out of local produce. We had a cherry one and a Calafate (local bush fruit like a very small blueberry). This was by far the most flavorful and best dinner we have experienced in Argentina yet—fresh and very yummy and we had the entire restaurant to ourselves.
