This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Meet Franco at his home before walking to the local neighborhood market for about 10 minutes. Here Franco will take you to his favourite butcher shop, a vegetable market and a spice shop. After exploring the market, and shopping for some traditional spices which will be used in the dishes that will be cooked in the class later, you will go back to Franco´s house and start cooking. Franco’s two hour cooking class is hands-on and you will learn to make two dishes from scratch. You will first prepare either the locro (a local stew made with corn, pumpkin, beans, meat, sausage, pork and local spices) or a lentil stew with braised ribs. Then you will learn to make humita, a typical local entre from Argentina´s Northern cuisine, made with corn, goat cheese and local spices. Later you will share the dishes you helped prepare and 1-2 additional dishes that have been pre-prepared, at Franco's dinning table.
• Eggplant marinade - served with sourdough and humita (corn cakes)
• Locro or Lentil Stew - (a local stew) / with braised ribs
• Panqueques flambeados de dulce de leche - Pancakes filled with local dulce de leche and burned with Rhum
