Provoleta - Argentinean Grilled Cheese

Cheese and Latin America don't often go hand in hand, but in Argentina – with its strong influences from and emotional ties to Europe – grilled provolone cheese is a popular precursor to that most treasured national dish, asado (barbecued meat). This delicious spicy, smoky, chewy melted cheese treat is indeed a perfect starter to whet your appetite for a meat feast, but we also love it as an easy and oh-so-satisfying snack on a wintry day. Why not give it a try yourself?

Note: you might like to accompany your grilled cheese with a traditional chimichurri sauce – the recipe can be found on our asado page.
