Argentina's climate and rich, lowland regions combine to make it one of the world's greatest food-producing nations. Native peoples from the northern part of Argentina were farmers who grew squash, melons, and sweet potatoes. Between 1880 and 1890, nearly one million immigrants came from Europe to live in Argentina. All of these cultures influenced the dishes of Argentina, creating deliciously unique flavors, such as 'Pumpkin in Syrup'.
