EL GRUPO EPICURIO DE AMERICA LATINA PRESENTA......
Welcome to the Latin American Epicurean
Tour Groupís weekend escape! Join us
while we travel exotic regions of Latin
and South America, and eat our way through
three countries in two days!

The first stop is the lush rainforest of
BRAZIL. We will arrive at our villa around
noon, just in time for brunch....Itís very
warm, but under the cool shade of the tree
tops, you will feel cool and calm. Our
tables are set by the patio, so, sit down,
relax, and listen to the gentle sounds of
the monkeys, the birds, and Roberto Carlos
singing romantic ballads.

Today we will enjoy a typical Brazilian
dish, FEIJOADA...it is a heady blend of
meats, beans and spices that is sure to
leave you sated after a few servings.

After, please help yourselves to our large
table of fresh tropical fruits...any fruit
you have ever dreamed of or imagined will
be available for your enjoyment. So, raise
your glasses of CAIPIRINHAS or beer and
enjoy the meal...you will have plenty of
time to recuperate....

When we meet again for late night cocktails
and appetisers in the evening, you can enjoy
more caipirinhas and a special SHRIMP
MOQUECA....Some dancing, perhaps, then rest
and have a good sleep, we have more gourmet
adventures planned for tomorrow.....

*******************************************

On our second stop, we will be arriving in
ARGENTINA, once again, in time for a
leisurely brunch at one of the famous
estancias. You will be greeted by Gauchos
on horseback, and they will lead you to the
covered porch where you will be enjoying
some of the local specialities with some of
the local full-bodied red wine...

The first course will consist of TORTILLA
CAMPESINA and a mixed salad of fresh greens
and home-grown tomatoes.

Then we will be serving POLLO RIO NEGRO and
a hearty CARBONADA CRIOLLA. To go along
with these main dishes, we will serve some
white rice and steamed green beans.

For dessert, you can enjoy the pastry chefís
ALFAJORES DANUBIO covered in DULCE DE LECHE.

After brunch we will enjoy a show of Tangos
and Boleros, two typical styles of songs
that are sure to leave you with a romantic
memory of Argentina.

********************************************

Later that evening, we will be travelling
back up North a bit to the lush mountains
of GUATEMALA. We will re-convene at the
base of Tikalís Jaguar Pyramid, a site
famous for its history and indigenous
architecture.

We will lead you to our sumptuous buffet
under the stars, where you will experience
the true cuisine of Guatemala.

But first, to open the appetite, some
PONCHE, Gallo Beer and appetisers, TAMALES
NEGROS and PICADO DE RABANO.

At the main table you will find dishes that
will excite you palate such as JOCON, ARROZ
CON POLLO, CHUCHITOS and CARNE EN ADOBO.

To accompany you will be able to select from
ARROZ GUATEMALTECO, PLATANOS FRITOS,
FRIJOLES NEGROS VOLTEADOS, VERDURAS EN
ESCABECHE and IGUASHTE, a special vegetable
salad.

For dessert you can opt for PLATANOS AL
HORNO, or once again, the table of fresh
tropical fruits.

After dinner we will take a leisurely
stroll by the base of the pyramid, and if
youíre feeling energetic, you can also
climb to the top!
