Full description
Discover the secrets of Argentinian cuisine on this cooking class. Your local instructor will show you the proper technique to make each dish and explain their history, as well as teaching you about the different culinary traditions in the country. You'll be welcomed with alfajores and a cup of mate, a herby hot beverage, then start your cooking class.

If the Market option is selected, start by visiting the Market of Progress, a 130 year-old historic and still-functioning gastronomic market, where you'll pick fresh and organic ingredients for your meal and occasionally get to try Argentinian treats. Next, make a brief stop in the English District to observe its architecture. Finally, you'll arrive at your instructor's home for your cooking class.

Make the dough and the fillings for meat and corn empanadas from scratch, and learn how to make Argentinian-style dulce de leche pancakes. During a short break you'll get to try a typical salami and cheese platter. Once you have finished with the cooking, sit around the table to enjoy the meal you’ve made all together, paired with Argentinian red wine.
