Choripán (Argentina). 'Preparing a perfect ‘chori’ is a matter of pride among many Argentinian men.

'Som Tam is made by slicing or shredding crispy unripe papaya into long strands that are then bruised in a mortar and pestle with fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, MSG, chilli, garlic and often slices of tomato and long bean. The result is a refreshing and often ballistically spicy salad that functions equally well as part of a meal or as a stand-alone snack.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/thailand

Cocktel de Camarón (Mexico). 'The exact composition of cocktel (sometimes spelled coctel) de camarón varies, but the fundamentals of this seaside lunchtime treat are plump, chilled shrimp fl oating in a tangy tomato sauce, with plenty of heat from fresh chilli, and a sweet top note. Some recipes are chunky with raw onion, and others add avocado. Another essential: a curvy parfait glass, to add the requisite fancy flair.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/mexico
