Ideas for an Argentina Themed Party
Argentinians' love of good quality beef and red wine is almost as famous as their love of football, and their rivalry with near neighbours Brazil.
When the national team are playing, everything is decked out in sky blue and white, and barbecues (or asados) will be fired up on every street corner. To set the tone, a little Argentine tango music (see links below) wouldn't go amiss.

Food for an Argentinian PartyIf you're a vegetarian, then much of the Argentine cuisine is not for you. Beef has been universally popular in Argentina since its introduction by the Spanish over 500 years ago, and continues to be one of the most frequently served foodstuffs, especially grilled or barbecued.
There is a strong European/mediterranean influence on much of the Argentinian cooking. As well as beef, chicken, lamb, pork and offal are all popular, and the use of fresh locally grown produce is still preferred. Argentine cooking is, on the whole, less spicy than that of many other South American countries, with sweet peppers, tomatoes, herbs and onions being widely used as flavourings rather than chillies. The European influence is evidenced in the popularity of foods such as Italian pasta, French style bread and seasonings such as parsley, fresh oregano, paprika, thyme and bay leaves.
