Friends, Family, Fire...
In Argentina, life is celebrated around the fire with a cultural heritage of grilling only the finest and freshest quality beef, wild game, seafood and seasonal vegetables.
Gauchos and sophisticated porteños alike know that food this good deserves only one thing: a traditional handcrafted sauce of non-GMO first-press olive oil, parsley, garlic, and carefully selected herbs and peppers known as Chimichurri.
Honoring Argentine tradition since 1996, Gardel’s authentic family Chimichurri recipes elevate everything that comes off the grill.
For a very special meal in 1968, Mom needed to conjure a chimi that would delight a demanding group of diners, both refined and traditional. This classic, authentic recipe did the trick, making Mom's first dinner at her future in-law’s estancia one everyone would always remember.
Inspired by Mom and Dad's 1972 honeymoon in Italy, Ajies & Balsamico captures the refinement and spirited kick of Italian cuisine. Its secret is pairing hot aji peppers with something else Mom fell in love with on her honeymoon: 100% balsamic from Modena, at the time rarer in Argentina than gold. The couple returned home carrying two things that would delight their friends and families for years—the secret to this unique, bold chimi, and my older brother Max.
