Did you know?

Most historians trace chimichurri back to the early 1800s. This condiment originates in Argentina and Uruguay, and was a popular dish during the Argentine War of Independence. The name comes from the Basque language word txmimitxurri, meaning “a mixture of things in no particular order.” That hasn’t stopped Irish cooks from saying the name comes from a Latin American pronunciation of “Jimmy McCurry,” a legendary Irish soldier who supposedly fought in the War of Independence for Argentina. Another story goes that when English-speaking colonists asked for sauce with their meal in Spanish, they would say che mi curry instead of che mi salsa. Everyone’s got an origin for this sauce, it seems!
