Ser Argentino. All about Argentina

Any Sunday.

Sunday as a family is a tradition well ours, which remains unalterable throughout the years.

For Argentines, family Sundays exist since the world is world, and the sequence is repeated infinitely throughout generations. When we talk about family, we don't mean just what one has created: the traditional Argentine family includes grandparents, parents, in-laws, children, grandchildren, brothers, uncles, cousins, sister-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and some neighbor of years who is already “like the family.”

The location is usually always the same; most often, the grandparents' house. The appointment is usually mid-morning and starts with a picadita for those who arrive early. The menu may vary, but in general you opt for  pasta : they are easier to cook and cheaper than roast. The long table, which the youngest are putting, has a grout of glasses and plates from different games. The aroma of the tuco is felt from the door and, who has the guarantee of the cook in charge, can afford to wet the tummy and taste it before anyone else.

Kids running, adults chatting, some arguing: as the song says, “they share laughter, bronca and bread.” Sunday as a family is a tradition well ours, which remains unalterable throughout the years. And Argentines know how important it is to treasure those moments so everyday and so transcendental at the same time.
