My 15 year old son has a school project in which he was to pick a country and prepare a traditional dish from said country and why they eat that particular food. He chose Argentina. I was wondering if someone could give some ideas for desserts and why they are traditional desserts. Any help would be greatly appreciated, due to the fact I have a feeling I will be dragged into it. Thank you

RJ, there is *one* traditional dessert that represents argentines as much as Tango or Maradonna. That is 'flan con dulce de leche'. Here is some information (and a picture) on Flan, http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flan. This other site has some information on local food traditions http://www.afuegolento.com/noticias/89/firmas/celi a/3532/. Both in spanish.
I would not know much about it.

I also found some general information on argentine cuisine here. But if you are looking for desserts go with the flan. You can't go wrong. Not knowing flan in Argentina is a sacrilege. Almost as bad as not knowing maccaroni and cheese here. Perhaps even worse, if you can imagine.

The vast majority of Argentine food too come from the many immigrants who came to Argentina. Italian food and Spanish food is the most commonly eaten. There is also some German influnce. Also Argentine Asado. =) you have to love Argentina for its rich culture.
