A lovely way to spend a few hours. Teresita and her husband are charming, warm and welcoming. We made empanadas and the pace was just right...including a wine break in the garden while the kitchen was cleaned between steps.

This is a fun day. A short train ride from the city and you are in the lovely town of Adrogue. You can see how a smaller town is compared to hectic BA. At her home you can learn how to make empanadas, enjoy a wonderful BBQ, and learn about what wines to pare with your food choices. Teresita and Raul, her husband, are great to ask questions about the politics, history and social life of Argentina. You should make time to do this!

August 2013....I booked a class on-line while in Buenos Aires for a few weeks. My fault...I should have waited for an on-line confirmation or email, but having been to Buenos Aires in the past, I'm somewhat familiar with the more casual approach to doing business. So, on the day of the class, following the instructions from the website, I boarded a shuttle bus and travelled over an hour to Adroge where Teresita lives. Once in Androge, left the bus station on foot and followed the walking instructions given on the website to find Teresita's house. The house number was no where to be found. Finally called upon a domestic worker at the home next door who told me to knock loudly on the green Driveway gate. This was a green wooden wall, not a gate. After several attempts at knocking loudly, a woman emerged, popped her head through a 4x12 inch opening cut in the "gate" - a kind of look-out hole - and announced "Teresita no home". Ugh! It took me a few hours to find my way back to a bus stop to get back into Buenos Aires - mostly because I was being followed by a local drunk/drug head who kept harassing me and I got turned around trying to loose the guy. This was a very nice residential area; no police to be found. Once back in the heart of the town, I found the main road but could not find the bus station. The townspeople - only the women were helpful...they tried, but didn't speak any English and my Spanish was unintelligible to them. I finally stopped at a sports good store thinking the younger workers would be helpful. The young men were so aloof and acted like they did not understand English. I was finally helped once I decided to purchase an official Argentine Futbol shirt for around $90 US dollars for my nephew. Only then did they discover that they could speak and understand English. They too did not have any patience for my attempts to speak Spanish. They brought a young woman from the back room to help me with directions back to the bus station. The security guard in the store even watched, laughing. This was the most horrible experience I've ever had in a part of the world that I otherwise adore. My sense is that Androge is a community of "haves" and "have nots". There are very large estates; Teresita lives in this area. The people who work in Androge come to town on fancy shuttle busses (the way I got there) each day from the poorer surrounding towns and the city. I wrote to Teresita after returning from Androge, but never heard from her or anyone on her staff. My advice: Get a confirmation IN WRITING before taking the trip. Footnote: When I returned to Buenos Aires, I learned that several people had died the night before in horrible flash flooding in La Plata. Not wanting to think anything negative about a woman who I had never met, I decided to let myself believe that Teresita had been called to help family in the flood stricken area. May or may not have been the case....I'll never know. Just get a confirmation of your registration!!

Lovely Teresita welcomed us into her country style kitchen and helped us make empanadas from scratch. We visited the local butchery to learn about the various cuts of meat we would be eating then went home to build the asado fire (bbq) and prepare the delicious sauces. We ate our efforts under the trees in the garden whislt sipping local wines. Was a wonderful relaxing day!!

Our family spent the afternoon learning to cook empanadas. A great lesson (with wine!) by Teresita and her granddaughter. Worth the travel. Check where your hotel is for the best way to get there.
