Our guide to the hot spots in Argentina's entrepreneurial capital city.
After you've arrived in the city, take in local sights such as La Casa Rosada (the pink presidential residence); La Bombonera (the Chocolate Box), the legendary stadium of the Boca Juniors fútbol team; and the fin de siècle architecture of the Teatro Colón.

Now they produce more than 10 tons of cookies, brownies and cakes a month.
