Moveable Feasts is a weekly agenda in which we give you the low-down on this week’s food fairs, workshops, and pop-ups in Buenos Aires.
This week the coronavirus has taken over the news feeds of everyone. It’s making it difficult to leave the country, wherever you are…but here in Argentina we aren’t in full-freakout mode just yet. Wash your hands for a minimum of 20 seconds, avoid touching your face, keep those basic hygiene practices in mind. Then calm damn, get out of your house, and go eat that good food that makes life worth living. This week we’ve got our first La La Lista event and an entire list that’s been curated by the Insta food critic we all know and love, Nicolás Belluscio the voice behind Ni Comida Ni Comedia. Get eating!
