Discover Argentina At An Omni Hotel

I was tipped off to some interesting options that are currently available at select Omni hotels in the U.S. Headlined as “Sumptuous Flavors of Argentina“, this Argentinean-designated experience allows diners and guests a chance to indulge themselves into a mixture of both traditional and modern cuisine. If you want more than a meal, you can book the Discover Argentina Package that includes accommodations, a sampling of wine & cheese, culinary class, dinner, tango cd, and a few other perks.

In September of 2007, Omni sent around 40 chefs and professionals down to Buenos Aires and Mendoza to get schooled on some culture as well as the current food & wine scene. You can read the chefs’ journals here. Quite an interesting read.

Looking at their sample menu, you can get an idea of the flavors and inspiration they brought back.
Omni says, “From traditional, classic recipes to the more modern fusion favorites…” I like that. Expect traditional fare along with some different twists that may also be found in Argentina; not a vague generic “authentic Argentinean-style cuisine” claim that others dish out yet marinate their steaks in chipotle pepper sauce.

I’m very impressed with that menu I must say. Even in my little city, located in the boondocks of southern Argentina, there are a of couple high-end restaurants that offer similar modern fare. The tenderloin sandwich recipe [PDF file], however, is another story…
