The World's Best Places for Sin

by Colleen Clark

Gorge in Argentina

The resolution: Banish the Häagen-Dazs, stock up on quinoa, and join a CSA. Bye-bye bacon chocolate, hello master cleanse.

The last hurrah: Join up with Argentina 444, a top U.S. chef, and a handful of fellow hearty eaters on a ten-day culinary excursion to Argentina's tastiest corners: Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Bariloche, and El Calafate. Along the way, you'll stay in cushy hotels, such as the Park Hyatt Palacio Duhau and Llao Llao, but you're here for the food. And there'll be plenty of it. Outings to markets, wineries, and butcher shops will whet your appetite for six- to eight-course tasting menus—a collaborative effort between the American chef and a famous Argentine counterpart. (Recent matchups have included James Beard Foundation award winner John Sundstrom and Maria Soledad Nardelli, chef at Buenos Aires hot spot Chila.) You'll also want to leave room for all-day parilla meat-fests, not to mention eating your weight in empañadas, sipping Scotch on a glacier, and topping it all off with (at minimum) daily cones of helado. But, hey, if the Argentines can eat like this and look as good as they do, you can too, right? Wrong. Get ready for that post-trip juice fast.
