Rob Rossi & Craig Harding preparing an asado at Home Hotel
In September 2012 Canadian Chefs Rob Rossi and Craig Harding went to Italy seeking inspiration and a chance to reconnect with their Italian heritage.
That’s how Rustic Adventures started: by bringing these two chefs together on a rustic food tour across Italy. Both chefs wanted to connect with their roots and look for inspiration to bring old world and modern cuisine together.
And they have decided to extend their trip to have a Rustic Adventure in Argentina. They visited several cities and while in Buenos Aires they have stayed at Home Hotel, and took the chance to prepare an asado in our parrilla!
Rustic Adventures Argentina will be on air this coming April 2014. In the meantime, you can check what these chefs have been doing while traveling in Argentina:
Mr & Mrs Smith, a boutique hotel collection, have asked boutique-hotel lovers around the world to vote for their favourite hotels in the category and over 47,000 have had their say.
From these votes they have created a shortlist for the global top 10 for the award. One winner and two runners-up were then chosen by the expert judges and team Smith.
And Home Hotel has been elected on the top 3 Best Budget Boutique Hotels!

The gastronomical identity of Buenos Aires would be very different without the existence of those typical porteño restaurants called “bodegones”, a culinary expression that arises from first stores and grocery stores that served “something to munch on” and sold products or drinks as well. This bodegones were originated by the merge between the Creole flavors and recipes that communities of immigrants brought to the country.
Bodegones are characterized for having a “local” flavor with some history, they can be informal and comfortable and offer an extensive menu, with homemade food and traditional dishes in generous portions and at very affordable prices.
Bar El Gallego
What defines a bodegon is the feeling of belonging to the city. It is a place for everyone, which recreates the family table in coexistence with a public space.
The neighborhoods of Buenos Aires are honoring the source of the gastronomical tradition with “semana de los bodegones porteños”. Over 40 bodegones offer a special menu for lunch or dinner, that range between $ 79 to $ 129 pesos.
