Why take this tour?

Your hands-on cooking class with your local host Constanza will last for about two hours. First, you will join her to slow cook a variety of meat and vegetables on the barbecue using a special type of wood called Quebracho, and learn about the different sauces, cuts of meat and methods of cooking them. After that, you will join Constanza in her large kitchen to learn to make traditional Argentinean empanadas or picadas. She will also teach you to prepare a typical sweet dessert like traditional crepes filled with caramel or mini rogel cake, which will be served with a selection of coffee or tea.
