The following is a quote from Jim, the owner of Maplelag in Minnesota.
Actually the Argentine staff has not seen the completed parrilla yet. I brought back the grill pieces when I was there last summer, and we didn't start construction until camp ended in August. So when they come next week, I think they will be impressed. Our local welder/blacksmith did a fantastic job on making the grill go up and down with just the pull of a lever and no crank or chain. We used it yesterday for the wedding party and they loved it.
I love the mollejas in Argentina, something very hard to get here.
Just to give you a little more background on why Argentina, normally when we close here the middle of March we head for Puerto Vallarta in Mexico for R and R. Three years ago, the Argentine staff who has been begging us to come for years to visit finally connected and my wife and I went for 4 weeks to BA and then to our best friend, Gustavo who with his family owns a hotel in Carlos Paz. We visited there and to be honest, Argentina just blew me away. So different than I what I was expecting and I couldn't wait to get back. My wife who likes the summer here and the garden stayed behind when I went last summer, and I am coming again this summer. I really hate the hot, humid weather here in July, and loved the temps and weather last year in BA. I went skiing for a week in Ushuaia and that was fun, and will maybe go again this summer. I also took Spanish lessons, but my teacher said I am always asking too many questions and not a very good student.

Jim is going to vacation in Argentina again. He is going to stop by and check out Sugar & Spice. I just hope he doesn´t decide to go back and build a cookie factory.
