We'll start by visiting to the Market of Progress, a 130 years old historic and still-functioning gastronomic market, where we'll pick fresh and organic ingredients for our meal. After that, we’ll make a brief stop in the English District to contemplate its architecture.
Once at my home, I'll welcome you first thing in the morning with our famous herby hot beverage, the "mate", and alfajores. We'll then make meat and corn empanadas, both the dough and the fillings from scratch. You'll also learn how to make Argentine style dulce de leche pancakes, which we'll enjoy for dessert. We'll also make a short break where you'll get to try a typical picada, consisting of a salami and cheese platter. Finally, once we've finished with the cooking, we’ll sit around the table to enjoy the meal we’ve made all together paired with Argentinean red wine.
I'll accompany you on each and every step of the way, showing you the proper techniques and explaining a little bit of the history of the dishes and the different culinary traditions in the country. Be ready to get messy, since it’s a hands-on experience!
I also offer a Cooking Class, without the visit to the market, starting at 10 am and 3 pm. Check it out here: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/863132
