Though the exact origins of chimichurri sauce are a bit unclear, food historians do believe that it was invented by Argentinian ‘gauchos’ or nomadic horsemen and cowherds who used the sauce to flavor their meat that they cooked over open fires. With a lore and folk heroism similar to the American cowboy or Caribbean pirates, gaucho culture really flourished from the mid-18th to mid-19th century in Argentina and Uruguay. Gaucho culture produced its own distinct music, literature (known as ‘la literatura gauchesca’), and culinary tradition that’s since become inextricable from Argentinian culture as a whole. Though gaucho culture has evolved, modern cowhands still often wear the traditional gaucho uniform.
