Llama meat and other culinary delicacies

A day trip from Salta to parts of northern Argentina (including Purmamarca and Humahuaca) on Friday last week gave us the opportunity to sample three delectable dishes:

1) Tamales (a mixture of corn and meat steamed or boiled in a leaf wrapper)

2) Llama meat

3) Locro – a stew containing meat, corn, chorizo and vegetables

My favourite was definitely the locro – highly recommended!
