A winter to get fat

If the health situation permits, the northern winter of Santafesino offers two holidays to add calories. Ravioli and salami for everyone.


In the north of Santa Fe there is  a town very clinging to  tradition  : Avellaneda. Separated only five kilometers from Reconquista form, with the head of the General Obligado department, an urban agglomeration. Both this town and the small rural areas that surround it work throughout the year to offer several celebrations in which you celebrate and remember the traditional,  while eating very well . A gigantic  raviolada is organized in June. In August, the salame festival. If you are to take care of yourself with meals, watch with walking near Avellaneda in the winter.

Two small rural places you will know on this note: La Vertiente and Avellaneda Oeste. Both are characterized by the  warmth of their small inhabitants,  who have the collaboration of the whole  town  of Avellaneda to organize their main events.

 Ravioli and salame for everyone 

Since 1979, this  traditional raviolada has been held in the club La Vertiente and uninterrupted.  It first aimed to maintain customs, share home ravioli and, incidentally, raise funds for the club, school and other community needs. La Vertiente is a small rural spot located on the outskirts of Avellaneda. The fact: If you don't like pasta, but you do big celebrations, with cumbia and draws, the party  offers you an alternative chicken menu  with salads.

Regarding  the Salame Festival , which is organized in the Paraje Avellaneda Oeste, see the numbers of the latest edition scares:  750 guests tasted more than 60 kg of salame, 50 kg of polenta,  160 kg of sausages and 300 kg of pork at the stake. An attractive, tradition for some time, is the draw of the giant salame 7 meters long.   Folkloric  and  tropical  ensembles also act,  and visit the feast personalities of the province.

Both  gastronomic  events bring together people from all over the northeast of Santafesino . In order to attend, early tickets are sold in institutions in Avellaneda, but also Reconquista, the most important city in that region. That is, this whole area of Santa Fe  meets for these celebrations .

If everything goes well, and this winter has these two great  meetings , keep them in mind to  know the tradition of the Santafesino interior  , in addition to eating very but very well.
