As many of you know, my husband is from Argentina. And if you follow me on Twitter or on the blog's Facebook page, you will have seen me sharing pictures of mate, alfajores and cakes sandwiched together with dulce de leche. Argentina - and its food - has become ingrained in our family's way of life.

We don't eat roast lamb without a spoonful of chimichurri on the side. My reviving afternoon cup of coffee has been replaced by mate, a punchy Argentine green tea. And jam has been pushed to the back of the fridge to make way for a 900g pot of dulce de leche - spoonfuls or which are stirred into rice pudding, porridge and spread onto pancakes.

And I've put all my favourite Argentina-inspired recipes in an ebook. There are 16 recipes, all with photographs and clear, simple instructions. All of them are inspired by Argentine cuisine and culture - the Coffee and Cinnamon ice cream was created to remind me of a trip to a café in Buenos Aires. I included the empanadas that my sister in law taught me to make. And I've developed a recipe for 'cheat's facturas' - little pastries filled with membrillo (quince paste) and eaten for breakfast, as a treat.

There's also Arroz con Leche con Dulce de Leche - I just can't resist stirring a few spoonfuls into a creamy, vanilla-scented rice pudding - and a chocolate cake thickly sandwiched with dulce de leche repostero with a glossy chocolate ganache billowing out over the top. 

I loved creating these recipes. And if you've been interested in my posts and following my trip to Argentina and the food I've been developing since, then I hope you enjoy this ebook. It's out on Amazon for downloading on the Kindle or your Kindle apps now.
