The Argentine Experience: Empanada Making, Steak, Wine, Alfajores and Mate

Select Date and Travellers

    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.
