    Gaucho Grilling in Uruguay

    4 Nights | October 2 – 6, 2020

    The further you drive east from Uruguay’s capital, Montevideo, the wilder the landscape becomes, until you arrive in the village of Garzón, population 200. This is where Francis Mallmann, certainly the biggest culinary star in the Latin world, has chosen to open a restaurant and adjoining inn.

    But a meal with Mallmann is not just a meal; it’s a dramatic scene of raw, rustic and romantic refinement, as you’ll see over the course of four days in this once-thriving railroad stop whose pueblo buildings have since patinated. The chef’s wild-fire cooking in this remote place, whether it’s with hot stones in a pit or a dome fire for a candlelit dinner in Garzón’s abandoned train station, sends a message about a way of living: Get lost, in the best of ways.

    Trip Highlights

    Accommodations

    We’ll split our group between the five rooms at El Garzón, overlooking our garden and pool, and Casa Anna, a short walk from El Garzón. Both are owned by Mallmann and infused with his unique style.

    Movement

    Go horseback riding with gauchos, the fearless cowboys of South America, and dance tango to live music on the terrace of Restaurant Garzón.

    Local Art

    Heidi Lender, founder of nearby CAMPO artist residency program, will lead us on an an art walk through the town’s center.

    Architectural Diversity

    We anticipate that soon, Uruguay will be a more talked about wine country than Argentina or Chile. Taste why at Bodega Garzón, the region’s first LEED-certified vineyard.

    A Complicated History

    Come to understand the African-American experience in the South with an underground tour of Savannah led by

    Southern Hospitality

    Take part in a progressive dinner through some of the most beautiful homes around Monterey Square, including that of local historian John Duncan.
