For The Herald
If ever there was a time to seriously consider going on a diet, it’s now. Because May is shaping up to be a really, really big month, calorie-wise.
Buenos Aires’ largest gastro fair, Masticar, is back in Colegiales for the sixth consecutive year between May 11-14 and it truly is going to be of epic proportions. Not only will 50 restaurants be whipping up classic dishes (prices 60, 80 and 100 pesos) and 80 producers selling their wares but Masticar 2017 is set to take over 6,000 square metres of the Universidad Católica Argentina, next door to El Dorrego avenue. Size always matters and it’s great to watch this festival steamroller its way into porteño eaters’ consciousness.
Meanwhile, cocktail aficionados will revel in BA Cóctel’s Semana de la Coctelería 2017. Running between May 13-20, master classes, workshops, pop-up events, cultural talks, tastings and drinks promos set the tone.
