This week’s Food of the World photo is by Julie Alvarez, from Argentina. Thanks Julie!

Panes de queso y mate / Cheese scones and Argentinian mate;

Julie says “mate is that strange drink which is drunk by Argentinians and Uruguayans”

I tried mate once and I think it tastes a bit like green tea. It must go very well with these cheese scones.

Have you ever tried mate?
