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.

Fun, Friendly and Tasty
Dec 2019
from the greeting to the goodbye - this was a fantastic, social get together with other travellers visiting the city. Great for sharing stories and experiences; whilst drinking cocktails, smelling flavours, empanada making challenges and all topped off with great food. Mate is it's own experience! All round relaxation. We were there for Christmas Day as we wanted a different kind of experience - it met and exceeded our expecations. It was a little difficult to find the doorway - because we walked up the opposite side of the street and missed the signage. Professionally delivered experience. Definately one to recommend for any first time visitor to the area.

Great night

It was a really fun dinner. My guest was able to experience lots of Argentine staples in a few hours (dulce de leche, empanadas, wine, steak, etc). The staff was awesome and really made it worthwhile.

Fun Night Out
Feb 2020
A very fun and interactive evening learning about Argentine culture. We sat at a table with people from all over the world sharing travel stories, drinking delicious Argentinian wine (which kept flowing through out the evening), making empanadas, and enjoying a wide variety of traditional foods. Learning how to do typical hand signaling was a blast.

Fun and interactive
Class A introduction to “classic” Argentine food. Make new friends as you sit family style and learn how make an empanada, an alfajor, order a tenderloin steak, and make mate. Eat the things you have made. Fun and interactive staff with good English. In Palermo Hollywood area. Go here early in your visit to Argentina.

An evening of fun and frivolity - met people from many different places, made empanadas traditional and creative way, learned how to order steak so it is enjoyable to the palate. Hostesses were fun, humorous, and helpful. It was a great experience.

Fantastic food, great service and helpful staff
Feb 2020
What a great idea this is! We had a fantastic time with empanada making and fun all around. The food was fantastic, and the staff were all young people with loads of personality. The wines were high quality and they never stopped coming all night. Typical Argentinian food was served. All in all and great night out!

Fun evening
Jan 2020
Had a great time here - very interactive experience, paired with fun facts and tips regarding Argentine culture! We were taught how to make our own empanadas, which culminated in a contest to see who's was the most creative. We also learned how to order our steak in Spanish, as well as some common expressions. The courses we were served were top notched as well. The empanadas, pork and steak, in particular, stood out. The dishes were paired with wine as well and we got fun chef hats to wear. Awesome time for our large group.

Fun experience with great hosts
Jan 2020 • Couples
The building and room were very nice, stylish, and cool (air conditioned... yay). The hosts were very fun and helpful. They directed the evening beautifully. My only wish would be that we made and ate more empanadas. Of the 3 hour evening, 2.5 hours were spent just eating the 4 course meal and drinking wine. Overall, it was a fun and memorable evening.
