Fer Rivarola

El Baqueano is a small and simple restaurant in San Telmo (Buenos Aires), far from the traditional circuit of porteño cuisine. From within its kitchen, Fernando Rivarola and Gabriela Lafuente are setting the rhythm for a new generation of chefs committed to the creation of a culinary concept which celebrates the Argentinean pantry. His work, the most notable in the country’s culinary scene, involves everything from reintegrating Andean products, to recuperating fish from the Paraná basin, to using native game like yacare or rhea, which regularly appear on his menu.
