I may have spoken too soon when I lamented the lack of high quality cheeses in ye ole Buenos Aires. I recently purchased an Argentine-made Camembert that, while it tastes nothing like what I think Camembert should taste like, is outrageously delicious. The brand is ‘Wapi,’ a word I love to say with as thick a Porteño accent as I can muster. I do not, however, recommend their goat cheese.
I was also recently told that Argentina makes fantastic prosciutto–a claim I personally confirmed. My life is, more than anything, an endless search for delicious cheese and pork products. If I could somehow convince someone to pay me for this task to which I devote myself with fervor, I would be (if you’ll pardon the pun) in hog heaven.
