How Chimichurri Came to Be

Sommelier Marcelo Rebole shared with us a great story of how chimichurri got its name. Chimichurri is a sauce made of herbs, spices, oil and sometimes garlic and if often used on grilled meats in Argentina. There are various versions of this story but the gauchos used to prepare the meals for the landowners who were mostly British at the time. The Englishmen would say, "Bring me curry!" which the non-English speaking gauchos eventually corrupted into "Chimichurri". If I don't learn anything else on this trip, that story is all I need. Fascinating.
