Mariela has worked as a tour guide for the past eight years and speaks Spanish, English and Portuguese. She lives in the hip neighborhood of Palermo and offers a hands-on experience, where you will get to cook along with her in her home kitchen. Since her kitchen is small, you might use the dining area for demonstrations and to prep the ingredients for your meal. You will learn to make an appetizer and a main dish, and will also be taught to prepare some local drink like fernet. For the meal, first you will be served a picada, a selection of finger foods such as different types of cheese, homemade sauces, spiced butter, and bread. This will be followed by tapa de asado (a meat roast with onions, peppers and red Argentinean wine) served with a side of mashed carrots, potatoes, pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Your meal will end with a sweet dessert. You can expect an authentic and delicious meal at Mariela’s home while sharing stories, food, and music!
