Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Disappointing last night in Buenos Aires

We paid extra for the wine/ smell experience which was 4 shots of mixed wine cocktail and one full size wine cocktail. The smell experience is identifying 20 scented oils. The bar area they have you do the drinks at is super crowded and made me feel very claustrophobic and nearly caused an anxiety attack. They move everyone upstairs to a dining room and the people who just pay for the meal join you. It was very crowded and super noisy. They dont have any noise reducing panels. The steak was very raw which is unusual for the way steaks are cooked in BA. I asked for them to cook it some more and they jusy warmed it up a bit, but it was still way to rare. Think seared ahi rare. They are very generous with the wine, almost to the point of over serving people. The one thing I was looking forward to most was the yerba matte drink. I have seen the sets for sale around town, but wanted to try it first before buying. I was looking forward to trying it when they brought out cups for everyone. They used mine as a demo for making it, let me have one sip then unexpectedly took it away. Everyone else seemed to have their own. I became upset and left. The staff downstairs asked why I was leaving and I told her. As we were waiting for the uber to take us back to the hotel the other staff came down and said the cups were to share. I don't remember hearing this and was confused why they would say this if everyone else seemed to have their own cup. The one thing I wad looking forward to most was taken away from me leaving the night and my trip to Buenos Aires ruined. I would say come to this event if you want raw steak, insanely noisy environment and having what you want most taken from you.

This was our first tour of our trip. It was perfect! It set the trip off with the type of foods, the types of gestures, the type of people... I definitely recommend doing this at the top of your itinerary. We had so much fun and suggested it to everyone we spoke to during our stay.
