This project is a multimedia website that shows a little about one of the most famous traditions of Uruguay, Argentina and the south of Brazil: their barbecue. The custom of eating this food goes beyond the simple please of tasting good meat. The salting and roasting of the meat on the fire is one of the oldest habits in the southern part of the continent. In this project, the tradition of the countryside and the urban regions are shown in a variety of ways. The project documents the tradition of the people and shows how they survive in a always changing world.
