Three places in the capital

“To visit the Hipódromo de Palermo on a sunny day. It has a beautiful view and is part of the city’s historic heritage. To go to a milonga, like Salón Canning, and to La Tangente, a new bar in Palermo, to enjoy the best live music in Buenos Aires.”



A flavor that transports you to your country

“When I was a kid, whenever I felt homesick, my mother would make dulce de leche by simmering a can of sweetened condensed milk in a pot of water.”


A destination in Argentina

“Valle de Uco in Mendoza, which I visited recently. Being at the foot of the Andes is amazing.”



The perfect plan

“Being at the terrace of the hotel Hermitage or Provincial, seeing the ocean at night or the fireworks display on New Year’s Eve. I have family in Mar del Plata and I feel that this city has a timeless atmosphere.”
