Buenos Aires Dining Experience: Empanada Making, Steak, Wine, Alfajores and Mate
- Dinner included
- Small group ensures personal service
After suiting up with an apron and a chef's hat, you'll be taught how to make a traditional empanada. Then, use your imagination and take part in a creative empanada-making competition with fantastic prizes! You’ll also enjoy grilled provoleta (a variant of provolone cheese), sliced chorizo sausage, homemade chimichurri (savory sauce for grilled meat), warm bread and salsa criolla (sliced onions with herbs).
Learn how to order a juicy bife de lomo, some of Argentina’s best steak, in Spanish. Indulge in your cooked-to-order steak accompanied by velvety mashed potatoes and oven-roasted vegetables. For desert, you'll make your own alfajores, a sweet treat that combines a biscuit with dulce de leche (caramel), melted chocolate fondue and coconut shavings – a combination sure to delight your senses! During your meal, enjoy all you can drink Malbec wine.
You'll also learn about the history and etiquette of mate drinking, one of Argentina's national pastimes, as you prepare this tea drink from scratch with your group and taste the subtle flavors of your creation.
You’ll leave this dining experience feeling like a true Argentine food expert!
Test your senses in the "aroma room" and learn how to identify wine based on their scent. Then, learn from the resident sommelier and mixologist how to make, shake and create wine-based cocktails from white, rose and red wines. Enjoy gourmet appetizers paired with each cocktail and step into the mixologist's shoes to make your favorite cocktail.

This was excellent! Lots of fun and an excellent way to meet people. I did the wine tasting and the dinner component. Both are worth doing. Wine and food was beautiful. I would highly recommend.

Truly an amazing experience. We participated in the sommelier class in addition to the empanada making class and both were superb. In the sommelier class we had a very enthusiastic teacher and we made three delicious drinks that were paired with tasty appetizer treats. We also tested our noses for various scents that are often found in Argentinian wines. Argentina is not all Malbec! Other wines are made in the country. Then we went upstairs to a beautiful loft dining room for the empanada class and dinner. The class was boisterous and fun, we learned a lot about Argentinian culture. Information we could use on our trip. Very helpful! The empanadas were super delicious. The dinner..... Best steak I have ever had in my life! And we ate a lot of steak during our two-week trip in Argentina. We made our own alfajores for desert and learned how to traditionally drink mate tea. A very memorable, fun night. We loved it!
