What You Can Expect
After suiting up with an apron and a chef's hat, you'll be taught how to make a traditional empanada. Then, use your imagination and take part in a creative empanada-making competition with fantastic prizes! You’ll also enjoy grilled provoleta (a variant of provolone cheese), sliced chorizo sausage, homemade chimichurri (savory sauce for grilled meat), warm bread and salsa criolla (sliced onions with herbs).
Learn how to order a juicy bife de lomo, some of Argentina’s best steak, in Spanish. Indulge in your cooked-to-order steak accompanied by velvety mashed potatoes and oven-roasted vegetables. For desert, you'll make your own alfajores, a sweet treat that combines a biscuit with dulce de leche (caramel), melted chocolate fondue and coconut shavings – a combination sure to delight your senses! During your meal, enjoy all you can drink Malbec wine.
You'll also learn about the history and etiquette of mate drinking, one of Argentina's national pastimes, as you prepare this tea drink from scratch with your group and taste the subtle flavors of your creation.
You’ll leave this dining experience feeling like a true Argentine food expert!
Test your senses in the "aroma room" and learn how to identify wine based on their scent. Then, learn from the resident sommelier and mixologist how to make, shake and create wine-based cocktails from white, rose and red wines. Enjoy gourmet appetizers paired with each cocktail and step into the mixologist's shoes to make your favorite cocktail.
Really not to be missed! Take the mixology part as well, as you can test your smelling ability by trying to guess different flavours and find out how to mix cocktails. The barristas are very fun and the different cocktails samples are very tasty. The food part is great as well, as it gives you info about Argentine traditions, food and wine, gestures and so on. You laugh a lot, eat a perfect meal, some of which (empanadas) are styled by yourself. The beef is cooked to perfection for each guests taste. It really was the best in BA! Our hosts were Fernando and Alex, both fun and very attentive. We really loved it! Even my husband, for whom it was the first encounter with cooking, was awed! Do it! It was one of our best experiences in BA together with the tango lessons we did with Lucia and Gerry!
We enjoyed all 5 hours of the evening! Great food, great hosts, great table mates and great wine.....lots and lots of wine!!
