f we travel to the northeast region of the country, we will find a German cake that has become a traditional dish in that area; while in the northwest – the result of thousands of years of a maize culture – the most outstanding dishes include locro (a type of stew made from maize, vegetables and meat), frangollo (similar to locro, but made from mashed grains), mote (a legumes stew), among other dishes made from this grain. In the Andean Patagonia the Mapuche cuisine is most predominant, while other traditional dishes are greatly influenced by the Swiss, German and Austrian cuisines. Quite unlike the kind of dishes we will be served in the Atlantic Patagonia, where, besides the excellent seafood options, there has been a significant influence of both the English and Welsh cultures in dishes such as the lamb casserole or the rhubarb pie.
