What You Can Expect

Buenos Aires Dining Experience: Empanada Making, Steak, Wine, Alfajores and Mate

Enjoy authentic Argentine dishes!

This unique interactive dining experience starts with your arrival at the location, at which point you'll receive a Malbec wine-based cocktail and meet your fellow foodie travelers.

Suit up in an apron and chef hat, and then learn how to close traditional Argentine empanadas using different 'repulga' techniques. After, sit down to a dinner consisting of food from all four corners of the country, including bife de lomo, arguably Argentina's best steak. The food served varies, but might include famous culinary exports like chorizo and grilled provoleta cheese, and is paired expertly with four varietals of wine.

Finish by learning how to make your own mate, a traditional tea drink that has its own ritual, etiquette, and history, which you'll enjoy with alfajores, the typical Argentine dessert.

Mixology Option:
Enter the “aroma room” to test your olfactory senses, learning how to identify wine based on its smell with the guidance of a sommelier. Accompanied by gourmet appetizer pairings, you'll learn to create wine-based cocktails using red wine, white wine and rosé. Then, choose your favorite and mix yourself a large glass to take to dinner with you.

We went to this on our first night, which was great because they introduced us to the most common local food and drinks and then we knew what to order when we were out on our own. The food was excellent and the alcohol plentiful. The two guys were very dynamic, knowledgeable, and friendly. They did a great job explaining how each food connected to the culture and even taught us how to order our beef. It was also fun to meet people from other countries.

All four of us including 2 teenagers loved this experience. It was fun and the food was delicious! We also enjoyed meeting and talking to the other travelers at our table. The staff went out of their way to meet every need including finding us a cab home at the end. We even learned very useful information about traveling in Argentina. It was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to anyone!

This was a wonderful experience. I love the way it was set up where we were able to sit with people from all over the world. I even met people that were on my cruise ship.
The chefs keep us entertained and explained the culture as well as the food.

The food was fantastic. We started with a great cheese appetizer with sauces in which we dipped bread. The steak was much better any I found in a restaurant while in Buenos Aires and I now have a favorite new food, empenadas. There was so much food that it was impossible to eat all of it. One person even took leftovers back to the ship.
. .
A most due if you like cooking, drinking wine and meeting new friends.
