Choripan, an Argentine chorizo sandwich with chimichurri __ We enjoyed this sandwich, made by Chef Pablo Kim of Argentine Asado, at a recent food and wine pairing dinner. __ Chef Kim made the chorizo sausage from beef, pork, white wine and chile flakes, grilled it and served it in baguettes spread with his chimichurri sauce. He flavors the chimichurri with parsley, oregano, vinegar, garlic, chile flakes and other spices. He explained that he makes the chimichurri with canola oil and not with olive oil, because its flavor is too strong and would overpower the other flavors. His chimichurri is available in jars. __ The choripan was served with 2015 Esfuerzo Syrah from Herencia Wines. __ The food and wine matching dinner, which took place at Don Chente Bar Grill & Lounge, showcased some of the dishes that will be featured at Altamed's triple celebration of Latin food and wine. The three festivals--Grand Tasting, East LA Meets Napa, and OC Meets Napa, will take place in Los Angeles and Orange Counties from July 26 to 28. __ For information on the festivals, see https://altamedfoodwine.org/ __ Following the dinner we viewed a short, moving documentary, "Esfuerzo" (which means effort), directed by Alana Maiello, about the life of the workers from Mexico who pick the grapes at a California vineyard. __ For the other dishes and wines at our festival preview dinner, see https://goo.gl/x78GLE __ The festivals are fundraiser events for AltaMed, which provides quality health care to underserved communities in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. AltaMed's motto is Quality Care Without Exception. __ Photo by Yakir Levy @altamedfoodwine @chefpablokim @morechimichurri @esfuerzowine @esfuerzofilm @alanamaiello @donchentedtla @herenciawines #Alt#AltaMedFoodWineFestival #AltaMedFoodWine AltaMed Food Wine #EastLAMeetsNapa #ELAMN #OCMeetsNapa #OCMN #GrandTasting #cho#choripana> #choripan #chimichurri #chimichurrisauce #chorizo #chorizos #chorizosausage #saborlatino #latinoflavor #latinocuisine #latinofood #grilledchorizo #grilledsausage #grilledsausages #baguette #baguettesandwich #canolaoil #oregano #garlic #vinegar #missionsanjuancapistrano #lalive #commercecasino
