Argentinian Alfajores and Conitos

Alfajores in Bariloche

I have to admit my addiction to chocolate and Dulce de Leche. If you put them together in a piece of deliciousness, you obtain alfajores. After watching this, you’re going to understand why I couldn’t stop eating alfajores in Bariloche.

Welcome back to Nomad Cook! This time we are in San Carlos de Bariloche, in the Argentinian Patagonia and we met with Silvina, the mind behind De Altura originally from Mendoza, she’s going to show us how to make alfajores and how to have so much fun during the process. One thing I love from this project is how much I learn from every person I meet every day in this nomad journey. In this case, I got a reminder on how much we can love what we do and yet, keep having fun doing it.

During the process, we also learned how to prepare Conitos, a variation of the Alfajor. They have more Dulce de Leche and a different shape.

My romance with Argentinian culture

Many years ago, during college, one of my professors sent us to watch a movie, from an Argentinian Film Festival. The name of the movie was Nueve Reinas (Nine Queens). That movie changed my life; I got out of the cinema questioning everything, challenging everything. After that day, I started following the work of the leading actor, Ricardo Darín. Such a talented person. Some years later, traveling in Perú, I discovered Argentinian alfajores. That day, my passion for this land was born, with having visited it yet, stole my heart, what a great way to pay the visit preparing some alfajores in Bariloche, famous for its chocolate culture.

Thanks to Silvina and my other Bariloche friends that, as I mention in the video, made me feel at home while I was living there, before departing to “La Ciudad de la Furia” Buenos Aires to work on a couple of videos, about asado and mate, two Argentinian traditions.
