Tour description provided by Viator

Come join us on a mouthwatering journey of Argentina's culinary highlights with Buenos Aires' most fun and interactive dining experience. Add some flare to your evening and opt for the wine-based cocktail class to begin. Then learn how to close your own empanadas using different 'repulga' techniques. During the dinner enjoy four boutique wines paired perfectly with foods from all four corners of Argentina, and top it off with what many claim to be the very best steak in the country. The final step; learn how to prepare Argentina's most popular drink, mate, coupled with the countries most popular sweet, alfajores.

This unique interactive dining experience starts with a Malbec wine-based cocktail on arrival, and an introduction to your fellow foodie travelers who you'll be sitting with on your 14-person banquet table. Then, it's time to suit up in an apron and chef's hat. This has nothing to do with cooking, but is a way to break the ice. It also makes for great photos. The night is designed to take your taste buds on a journey all around the country, with foods that you might come to Argentina expecting to try, and some surprises that you definitely were not expecting to try. Each and every product used is of the very best quality available, and paired with boutique wines that enhance every mouthful.
