For us Argentines, “Asados” are organized with family. Mine is every Sunday. But when you travel, your friends are your family. So here, in Barcelona, I organize it with friends, but not every Sunday. During every Asado, everyone has their particular role. I take care of the grills, my butcher as usual prepares the meat for me as we, Argentines, like it. I like cooking. Cooking makes me relax. It helps me think about something other than football. Until last summer, Dani brought his happiness and jokes. Ney chose the music. Luis prepares the mate and Leo plays with the kids.
