Cool Food Blog

Seashells & Sunflowers is a very cool food blog of Argentine recipes written by an American living in Argentina.  Since Pope Francis is Argentinian, I’ve wanted to know more about Argentina, as I’m sure a lot of people have.  And that includes the food.  Last year, I learned about empanadas, and a few years before that, alfajores, of which there are recipes on the site.  Any place with stuffed provolone cheese has to be good.  With 60% of the population of Argentina having some Italian ancestry, Argentine food reflects an Italian influence.  A recipe I’ve seen associated with Argentina is faina, a flatbread made from chickpea flour.  Italian influence can be seen in this Tarta Pascualina or Easter pie.  If you’re looking for more Easter recipes, try this rosca de Pascua, or Easter bread ring.
