Get a taste of Argentina's local cuisine with this 3.5-hour interactive dining experience in Buenos Aires. Begin with a Malbec-based cocktail, then learn how to make wine-based cocktails under the guidance of a sommelier and mixologist (if you choose the mixology option). After, master the art of correctly closing empanadas before sitting down to a meal of authentic Argentine cuisine, paired with four boutique wines. Finish by learning how to prepare 'mate,' the country's most popular drink, paired with alfajores. Numbers limited to 14, ensuring a small-group experience.
What to Expect
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.
