Friends, Family, Fire...
life is celebrated around the fire
with a rich cultural heritage of grilling only the finest and
freshest quality beef steaks, offal, wild game, seafood and seasonal vegetables.
Gauchos and sophisticated Porteños alike
know that food this good deserves only one thing:
the best Chimichurri --
a classic handcrafted sauce of All-Natural, Non-GMO ingredients, mended together in just the right care, recipe and proportions.
Honoring Argentine grilling and tradition since 1996,
Gardel’s authentic family Chimichurri sauces elevate everything that comes off the barbecue.
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. Mom & Dad 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.
Before our family opened Gardel’s in West Hollywood in 1996, the parrilla in our Buenos Aires home brought the family together physically and in spirit. While Grandfather manned the flames, Dad enchanted us with his stories and jokes, giving Mom the freedom to unleash her greatest passion: creating the unforgettable Chimichurris that elevate everything that comes off the grill.
