Your local hosts Jorge and Mariela offer a hands-on experience, where you will get to cook along with them in their home kitchen. Since their 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. Your meal may include a dish like 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 and a selection of traditional finger foods. Mariela and Jorge live in the hip neighborhood of Palermo, home of eclectic restaurants, chic cocktail haunts and quirky fashion stores. As Mariela worked as a tour guide for many years, she has a wealth of information and a lot of stories to share - so let her introduce you to her country and its history, cuisine, people and culture over delicious food and lovely conversation!
