your hostess, does the cooking. She’s been collecting her
family’s traditional recipes since she was a small girl, and
is now adding those of her husband’s family, dating back to
Pedro Luro’s Basque ancestry. Sara plans the daily menus,
and manages to surprise and delight her guests. Everything is homemade
by her, from the starters, to the main courses and the puddings.
She uses home-grown produce from the kitchen garden, or fruits from
the woods, wherever possible. Among the dishes you might try, there’s
criollo-style beef, the delicious traditional stew puchero, steak
and kidney pie (the Argentine way), spinach pancakes, and a wide
variety of homemade pastas. Tasty puddings are the final touch:
pancakes with a rustic version of dulce de leche, the Argentines’
favourite sweet caramel, chocolate mousse, giant alfajor (another
Argentine tradition, delicate sponge made from maize flour), or
apple pie, lemon meringue pie, the Argentine version of bread pudding,
budín de dulce de leche, and many more.
