The first edition of the Federal Championship of Asado, dedicated to honor the Argentine identity through its more emblematic food ritual, will take place on Sunday, October 9th, from 11 am to 7 pm, in a giant open air event with free entrance to the public along Av 9 de Julio, from Corrientes to Av. de Mayo.
The 23 Argentine provinces and the Capital city of Buenos Aires will participate in the barbecue ("asado") competition. 24 grills (parrillas) will be installed at Plaza de la República next to the Obelisco. The participants will compete in two different categories, and will be evaluated by a panel made up of cooks from best Parrillas of Buenos Aires.
During the event visitors will be able to enjoy traditional Argentine dishes at the large Food Courts, as well typical national dances and live music shows.
