FOOD, KNOW-HOW AND FLAVORS. A SMALL OF NORTHWESTERN ARGENTINA GASTRONOMIC HERITAGE
ALIMENTOS, SABERES Y SABORES. PEQUEÑO ATLAS DEL PATRIMONIO GASTRONÓMICO DEL NOROESTE ARGENTINO
This book is an invitation on a journey of discovery through the Argentine Northwest and get to know it through one of its most pleasant and revealing distinctive features: its gastronomic heritage. The world of food transcends the mere satisfaction of nutritional needs, since it also involves the sphere of culture, identity, sociability and pleasure. It is not only about food, it is also about the way in which each human society obtains, produces, prepares and consumes their meals. This holistic approach reveals a universe rich in flavors, which both expresses and is itself an expression of economic systems, technologies, world views, values and history.
