The Argentinian night in Paris – in pictures

As announced some days ago five great Argentinian chefs – Mauro Colagreco, Narda Lepez, Fernando Trocca, German Martitegui and Guido Tassi – have gathered in Paris to create an unforgettable utterly delicious 10 hands dinner which was masterfully paired with great cocktails by Tato Giovannone, the best Latin American barman, and great Argentinian wines wonderfully chosen by sommelière Paz Levinson, best American sommelier.

The event happened in fully booked Mauro Colagreco’s Parisian restaurant Grand Coeur on 5th November and I am hoping that it was not the last dinner of that kind. Food was delicious and atmosphere beautifully vibrant, an evening well worth the trip from London.
