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.

Entertaining, friendly, warm, and informative evening of mixing local cocktails, tapas, making empanadas, steak dinner with roasted vegetables, and make your own cookie sandwich dessert. Learn about Yerba mate, too.

Loved this! It was so much fun. The hosts were very engaging, funny, and helpful. We did not choose the mixology class beforehand but it was ending when we arrived and it looked like everyone was having a very good time. You get to make two empanadas and I use quotations because you are simply filling the pastry with meat that they have already prepared. They show you the closing techniques and you do that. Then, you get a nice big steak and they teach you the Argentine way to order it. Last, you'll get to create your own dulce de leche cookie desserts known as alfajores. They will keep filling up your wine as quickly as you can drink it.

This was our first activity in Buenos Aires when we arrived and we are glad for that. It was a nice introduction to the customs and culture that helped us with the rest of our trip. The staff were fantastic guides through the many courses and very entertaining.

Fantastic experience not to be missed in BA! Mixology host Nina is friendly, hilarious, and super helpful in ensuring everyone make the best cocktails. Smelling contest on 20 different items is more challenging than one can imagine. Steak and wine are great, and the empanadas made by oneself taste particularly delicious! We also had a great time sharing experiences with other travellers!
