Note about Chilean BBQ

Twice now we have been invited to Chilean BBQ so I can say that since each experience has been identical that it is ‘typical’ Chilean BBQ consists of six things:

  • Chorizo
  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • A special Chilean salsa (always homemade)
  • Bread
  • Copious amounts of wine

That is all. Really the bread is just to facilitate the putting of meat and salsa into your mouth…since both times, the BBQ was more of less eaten with hands.  The meat is skewered and cooked on a fire to be eaten.

Good wine is ridiculously cheap in Chile so the general rule of thumb seems to be a litre a person.
