THE HIGH ART OF ARGENTINE GRILLING

The broad, windswept vistas and fertile pampas of Argentina are both stunningly beautiful and ideally designed for nurturing Argentina’s culinary obsession: beef. Grilled beef to be exact. According to Francis Mallman, Argentina’s wild-haired culinary visionary and self-appointed spokesman, “grilling in Argentina isn’t just about the food. It is a ritual and a ceremony.”

Boys on the Backs of Beasts by Jeff Johnson

Boys on the Backs of Beasts by Jeff Johnson

The morning is cloudy with a cold bite in the air. Andres Kempel, a big-game hunting and fishing guide, has arrived. He is quiet and confident, old-school. We watch from the other side of the fence as he tosses saddles around effortlessly, balancing a smoke in his mouth. Little by little we wander towards him, gravitating to his energy. He smiles crookedly and shakes our hands. One thing is clear: Andres is a man amongst boys. Roark has a rival.

HOW TO LIVE DELIBERATELY WITH KARINA PETRONI

On our recent trip to Jamaica, a friend of the family named Karina Petroni joined the crew to write about the adventure at hand.

ORACABESSA FISH SANCTUARY

ORACABESSA FISH SANCTUARY

A man in a spring suit sharpens the tip of a spear by the dock. A joint possibly hangs out of his mouth, my memory evades me. He points out a large grouper beneath the dock. I nod, thinking little about the significance of the large predator swimming idly beneath us. That large fish, I would soon learn, isn't as common as one might expect in this part of the Caribbean.
