The Urban Grocer Contributor

By The Urban Grocer in New Food and Packaging on Tuesday 6 December 2011

Any tried and true foodie in Buenos Aires is an assiduous follower of Chef Diego Felix’s’ closed door restaurant, Casa Felix. Typically, however, his inspired pescatarian eats are only available a few months out of the year in Buenos Aires while the rest of the time, the Felix clan travels through Argentina, San Francisco, New York, Puerto Rico, and Latin America, generally, hosting closed door diners around the world. Luckily for all of us here in Buenos Aires, his contemporary yet distinctively regional fare can now be found in private events around the city as well thanks to the super exclusive Oasis Clubhouse.

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in New Illustration on Friday 22 October 2010

I’m always in awe when I see illustrations that catch the essence of a person and I am all the more puzzled when that works with just a few lines, colors and shapes. Pablo Lobato from Argentina is a master in this category. His celebrity portraits are amazing little masterpieces.

A La Antigua, Mendoza, Argentina

Allan Soutaris Reader Find

By Allan Soutaris in Cool Travel on Wednesday 6 January 2010

Osv Aldo Furrer Vigneaux welcomed me into his small kitchen with enthusiastic hand gestures and a warm smile. He was stocky, balding and bounced when he walked. It was unassuming and homely. There were several medium sized pots on the stove and a young woman at the sink. It opened to a larger guest area that was filled with natural light. We spoke about his many dips and liquors. He had particular favourites and passionately informed me of the flavours and the inspirations of each. I was particularly interested in the pink coloured liquor containing a rose petal. He assured me I could taste it but first wanted to show me his ‘baby olive trees’.
