It takes almost three hours to complete the cooking process. Then, the task of uncovering the whole layer by layer begins. The ingredients have been cooked in an even way, with a peculiar taste similar to the traditional asado, magical and loaded with the value enclosed by this ritual passed on from generation to generation. 
Long tables are arranged near the fire so that everyone may take their dish and be ready to enjoy the delicious curanto in the company of local craft brewed beer.
