Terrence Henry is a freelance writer living in
Austin, Texas. In January 2009, he and his wife embarked on a food tour
of Argentina, Spain, Italy, England, Canada, and the United States. Some 13 months later he settled in Austin, where he is now learning
the art of Texas barbecue and writing about food and film.
On Argentina's "Truth and Justice Memorial Day," reflections on a country's difficult history and the peace it now enjoys. Sharing a sumptuous meal with friends and family over a big, Argentinian steak and a bottle of Malbec is just as fine a way as any to say "never again."
From DC to to San Francisco to Buenos Aires, economics are inspiring chefs to do less with more. From haute cuisine chefs renting out old Chinese restaurants by the night to gourmet food stands, great food is getting cheaper and, often, better.
In times of economic hardship here in the U.S., an opportunity for a new beginning. Why not uproot to a leisurely land rich with red meat, red wine and the myriad sights and smells one can only find in Argentina? Even these first few days are filled with discovery.
