This is the 5th edition of "Caminos y Sabores" (Roads and Flavors), an exhibition that features, during 4 days, the offers in typical food, tourism and handicrafts from all the regions in the country.
The Argentine provinces will be represented in the exhibition through their native foods. The Fair includes nine thematic roads, which are the show´s trademark, organized in an itinerary that links food, beverages and flavors with the landscapes and traditions of every province: Traditions Road; Tea and Yerba Mate Road; Beverages Road; Meats Road; Oil and Spices Road; Fruits from the Earth Road; Cheese Road; Sweets Road; and Tourism Road.
As every year from the first edition in 2005, visitors will be able to sample and buy olive oil; home made salamis; cow, sheep and goat cheeses; wines from family owned wineries; homemade jellies, just to mention some of the products. There will also be tourist offers of all kinds at the Tourism Road, and a variety of handicrafts made with the typical materials and features of every region.
In the Cooking Room (Sala de Cocinas), at every moment, different chefs will be preparing dishes based in Argentine typical ingredients; and at the Conference Room, specialists in every topic will talk about tourism, regional food, territorial development, and other subjects related to the Argentine culture.
One of the main features this year is the visit of the president of Slow Food International movement, Carlo Petrini, to inaugurate Terra Madre Argentina 2009.
