If I am packing now and leaving for the airport, I think I’d catch the next flight to Argentina, Uruguay, or Brazil. But I would definitely visit all three countries once I am there. I would love to discover how they cook with an open fire in Argentina and Uruguay. I have been dreaming about it ever since I read Francis Mallmann’s book Seven Fires. My friend Peter Kaminsky, who wrote the book, has told me incredible stories about the beauty of their products and the wildness of their lands.
On a shorter trip, though, I would go to Iceland to taste Nordic seafood and for a relaxing break — I’d soak my butt in a hot springs!
