What You Can Expect

The Argentine 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.

This is a super fun experience in BA. Make sure you take the mixology course, as this is also nice. It's highly interactive and fun, including empanada making I was terrible,wine drinking, and of course, a massive steak. The people running the show are super fun, teaching everything from Argentinian hand gestures to how to order your steak I'm a juegosa guy. This is the one tour to do in BA if you don't have any other time. Go. It's worth it.

This was a lot of fun! You get to make empanadas, and some of the other food is cooked for you by professionals. Would do again.

There were 4 of us that went and we had a great time! Also had a lot of fun with our table mates and two of us won from our group. Charlotte won for making the winning empanada and I won for the correct answer. Had a wonderful time and the staff was great!

Just wow. We feared this would be a touristy deal and it was. We feared we wouldn't come away with a lot of new cooking ideas we didn't. But darn it we had so much fun! This team brought the diners together in such a spirited and spirit-filled environment and we all had a ball. The mixology portion of the night was terrific and we did get some great new cocktail ideas there. And while we didn't learn a lot about cooking at the dining experience, the food was terrific and we had a gas hanging out at two large community tables. I cannot state it clearly enough: EVERYONE who works at the Buenos Aires Dining Experience comes together to ensure their guests have a ball and come away with a broader understanding of Argentinian culture.

Lots of fun doing it, meeting all the ladies and making new friends. I wish they had given us recipes to make the stuff that goes inside of the Empanada's. This is a must stop when in BA.
