Why We Wrote Authentic Food Quest Argentina
Claire and I created Authentic Food Quest in 2015 to discover and highlight authentic food from around the world. Our goal is to inspire travelers to have deeper connections and experiences on their travels through food.
We believe that one of the best ways to travel is through authentic food. Through authentic and local food, you connect deeper with the people, you discover more, you surprise yourself with new tastes, and awaken your taste buds to new flavors.
We started our quest for authentic food in South America. After eating our way through Argentina, we’ve taken our discoveries, learnings and experiences and put together the ultimate guide for your food travels in Argentina.
Authentic Food Quest Argentina will help you create your most delicious and memorable trip to Argentina.

What People Are Saying
“I’ve travelled a fair amount, and experiencing local foods is always high on my must-do list. But even for a seasoned traveler there’s always a bit of wondering (Am I really experiencing the authentic?) and occasionally a bit of worry (Is this a little too “authentic”?). This book takes care of the research part of food-based travel, and their research into local chefs, markets, food destinations, food styles, and dishes, is comprehensive. It helps that the authors aren’t just doing research; they’re doing a lot of eating (and shopping, and talking, and picture-taking, etc.). Recounting a lot of that in the book makes this more than a handy guide to hot spots or meals—but a model for a way to really experience a place.” Jason Lobdell
“Authentic Food Quest’s guide to eating locally in Argentina is full of knowledge and inspiring stories. It is a great companion for travelers who are interested in experiencing the local culture and cuisine. I felt as though Rosemary and Claire were sitting next to me at the table sharing their culinary adventures, explaining the menu, and providing assistance with any part of the meal (such as ordering in the local language, cultural nuances, and tipping etiquette). The guide is a culmination of dedicated research, knowledge from local chefs, and the authors’ adventurous and playful spirits. I am excited to watch how Authentic Food Quest’s guidebooks evolve and I am hungry to see their next installment.” Clare Hancock, Editor in Chief at Immersion Travel Mag
“This book is an invitation to travel but a slow travel, at human scale, that takes the time to meet the local actors, to discover its culinary culture and its way of life as for the Argentine each meal is an opportunity to meet and exchange. It is a must to prepare for one’s trip … even though you may not have plans to go to Argentina, this guide is a journey deep into the Argentine soul which illustrates this phrase from the French epicurean author Brillat-Savarin: “Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are.” Tuan Dinh
