As a Thanksgiving tribute, I felt I should honor food with a blog post— specifically, in this case, Argentine cuisine. While you are probably skimming this with a full load of cranberry-soaked turkey in your belly, my singular goal with this blog is to make you more hungry.
On our last full day in Córdoba, we woke up early and walked to the bus station. About an hour outside of the city sat the little town of Alta Gracia. While the town housed notable artists and musicians over the years, the most famous (and controversial) former inhabitant was Che Guevara.
Argentina has a strange population distribution. Its largest city, Buenos Aires, is home to 13.5 million people. Córdoba is the second largest, with a population of 1.6 million. Jimi’s home city of Tucumán comes in sixth, at just under a million. But while the population of Córdoba is less than double that of Tucumán, the city feels ten times as big.
