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.

Such a fun experience! Great night out in Buenos Aires. The staff was incredible, from start to finish. Very accommodating, funny and knowledgeable about the food and culture of Argentina. We met some great people at our table, and most importantly, ate like kings! There is a lot of food included (so arrive hungry!) and it's delicious. Incredible steak, sides and starters. Highly recommend doing this if you have a free night in Buenos Aires.

My experience was magical as this was my first stop after landing in Buenos Aires. The hosts kept the entire night fun and light. They did their best in showing the passion Argentinians have toward their food. The empanada making competition was both delicious and novel. When it came time to eating the steak, they explained the traditional methods used in the country. With dessert and mate after the main meal, I was definitely full and happy. I would come back the next time I'm in Buenos Aires.

This was one of my favorite parts of my time in Buenos Aires. I highly recommend that anyone in Buenos Aires take part in this experience. The staff at The Argentine Experience was wonderful. They were super friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience well worth the cost. I would also suggest that everyone add on the Mixology option. Trust me you won't regret adding the mixology class.
