My 1st-year students at "Instituto Santa Cruz" tell the world what teens in our community consider typical of our culture (for the BC Connecting Classrooms Programme - Project: "Identity and Belonging - Exploring who we are" .
Here in Argentina, we’ve got
different kinds of meat. ( Like
churrasco, colita de cuadril and
asado.). They’re original from our
country. They’re really typical here
and we cook them in different ways.
This dish is called locro. It’s a kind
of stew that has pumpkins, beans,
corn, potatoes and meat. It’s an
original dish from our country too.
We eat it on special dates.
Here you can see our
milanesa. They are from
Milan (Italy), but they’re
really ordinary here. They’re
rolled in bread. They could be
with chicken or meat, and
fried or roasted.
These are empanadas. The dough
can be filled with meat, jam and
cheese and many other options. We
bake or fry them.
As you probably know, pizza is an
Italian dish. Everybody knows it, and
here they are really, really popular.
Pasta is originally Italian too, as
everybody knows. There are lots of
kinds of pasta, such as ravioli and
noodles, and in Argentina we love
Dulce de leche is some
kind of caramelized
milk. It’s sweet and
tastes really well. We
use it to fill cakes,
alfajores, pancakes and
other sweet dishes.
