Photographer's Note

I'm back!

This is Uruguay's (and Argentina's) most typical food. The grill is called parrilla and the food here is cooked with the burning ashes that are generated by the wood you can see on the side. The ashes are placed below the food and it is slowly cooked to perfection. We eat all parts of the cow here (not bones of course), nothing is thrown away. The most common cut though is called asado and the whole process is called making asado although you might be cooking something else.

This picture was taken at El Palenque in El Mercado del Puerto, probably the most famous restaurant in this country. The Parrilla is huge and there are three different asadores working as you can see...

Hope you find it interesting...

P.S. Used ISO 800 because the place was crowded and really dark. Couldn't use a tripod, that's why the noise is there.
