Alfajor Cordoba: Ta great!
Every alfajor has its magic. You can never miss a special filling, a layer of chocolate or glaze, or whatever you like best. Many Argentines tell us from abroad that the alfajor is one of the things you miss most when you are far away. Also the weed, the sweet milk and the Fernet, obvious! But there is one type of alfajor that drives us crazy to the Cordobes, and everyone who visits this province. It’s the cordovan alfajor. Companies that are engaged in the production of this delicacy are many. Among the most recognized are La Quinta, El Rosario, Chammas, among others.
