Lucas Kelm, L’argentine
The uprooting can be difficult, but Lucas Kelm was able to take advantage of the experience he had to live outside his homeland. After leaving the country as a boy with his family, he began his journey in gastronomy at age 15 and today he is one of the best bartenders in the world. In addition, he created a drink in honor of Argentina.
After the 2001 crisis, like many Argentines, Lucas Kelm’s family emigrated to Europe. More precisely, to Italy. There they settled in a town near Venice. Lucas was 13 years old and his brothers, 8 and 4. At 15, he began working as a waiter to have his own money, although he still attended school. Years later, his family opened a typical Argentine restaurant in the town and he also worked there. Until he met the true love of his life: the bar.
It all started in a restaurant where I worked in Venice, which had a bar. There he discovered that the bartender’s function combined two of the things he liked best: create as a chef and, at the same time, be face to face with the client. Then he knew that was what he wanted for his life.
Over time, Venice was small and decided to experience other destinations. He spent two years between Ibiza and Barcelona. There he began to create. Then, international recognition began to arrive. In 2017, he won the final of a premium vodka contest in Italy that allowed him to compete in Ibiza against other countries. He came second in the world rankings. Today the brands ask for it as a figure: recently it was in our country invited by a gin brand to be part of the Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants 2019, which was held in Buenos Aires.
By the way, he took this opportunity to present L’argentine, a snack he created in tribute to Argentina. What does it have? Malbec, of course, and Campari, the bitter Italian. In this way, it combines two ideas: the union of the family and the union of its two countries. Every time he tries L’argentine, Lucas Kelm travels to his childhood: at noon on Sunday, when his grandfather invited him some wine with soda before pasta. Because, when you carry your country in your heart, you never leave it at all.
