“PARRILLA” TOUR

Parrillas are Argentine restaurants offering the most traditional cuisine. Most visitors to Buenos Aires only dine at the most touristy parrillas published in guidebooks and sadly miss out on some of the city’s most delicious gems. To experience and taste authentic Porteño flavors, join us on our Parrilla Tour, to discover hole-in-the wall restaurants where the locals go, learn about Argentina’s culture and cuisine, and meet others during the relaxed and social tour.
What’s Included:
° Walking tour of 3 different authentic local parrillas and restaurants 
° Tasting traditional foods at each stop and excellent Argentine wine
° Visit to one of the best artisanal “heladerias” (ice cream shops) in the city
° English explanations of the food sampled along with the history of the neighborhood
The Palermo tour is conducted every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, beginning at 12 pm (noon), and Tuesday at 7.30 pm, and lasts 2.5 hours.
The San Telmo tour is conducted every Monday and Wednesday beginning at 12 pm and lasts 2.5 hours.

THE ARGENTINE EXPERIENCE

The Argentine Experience is designed to give you an introduction to the best of Argentine cuisine and culture. It is not only a cooking class, but a fun and unique experience, where you will meet and dine with people from all over the world.
Create your own empanada learning the traditional ‘repulgue’ technique, while enjoying grilled provoleta cheese with sliced chorizo sausage. Use your imagination in Argentina’s first and only empanada competition.
Enjoy the very best steak in Argentina, cooked to order and accompanied with velvety mash potatoes and oven roasted vegetables. Vegetarian, pescetarian and celiac options are available on request.
Learn about and enjoy unlimited wine throughout the dinner. For desert make your own alfajores, Argentina’s national sweet. Finally, get taught about the history and etiquette of mate, Argentina’s national pastime, and prepare it from scratch among yourselves.
Throughout the whole evening our guides will talk you through the distinct Argentine culture that will have you acting like a local in no time – from talking with your hands to ordering steak like a pro. And don’t be afraid to ask questions! Our guides are a mix of locals and expats who know Argentine culture and cuisine like the back of their hand – they love food, they love Argentina and they love to talk!
Available Monday to Saturday, at 7.15 pm

CLOSED DOOR ASADO DINNER

While it's no secret that Argentine beef is worth flying around the world for, visitors to Buenos Aires don't always get the chance to experience an Argentine asado and its many rituals and traditions. An asado is so much more than a piece of beef on a plate so skip the parrilla circuit and join us for a night of food, wine and sharing as we bring the best of Argentine traditions into an urban, closed-door setting.
Our 5 course dinner includes a picada (cheese and cold-cut platter), salad, "achuras" (grilled starters), a great steak and if you're able, some dessert. Additionally, each course is paired with a specifically selected Argentine boutique wine. But most importantly, you will have a chance to learn what an asado is and feels like.
You will have front-row access to our the beautiful parrilla (grill), along with an Argentine host there to answer any questions and walk you through Argentina’s rich asado traditions.
Discover how Argentines prepare and enjoy their asado from actual Argentines! Learn about the ingredients, techniques, secrets, rituals and traditions that make Argentine asados so special
What´s included:
°5-course Asado with a traditional picada, salad, achuras (grilled starters), steak and dessert.
°Each course paired with a specially chosen wine to enhance your dining experience.
Available Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at 8.45 pm

WINE TASTING AND TAPAS

Argentina has a rich history of producing great wine.  The country’s wine are unique and exciting and vastly different than those from any other wine region in the world.
Discover the wines of Argentina, and learn a little about its wines, regions and history, all during our fun, relaxed and social wine tasting in Palermo.
The Wine Tasting includes:
° Tasting of 5 different premium Argentine wines that represent the wide range of varietals and regions of the country
° Small appetizers
° English explanation of the wines tasted and a relaxed introduction to Argentine wine
Our tastings include 5 wines from small production Argentine wineries from across the country.  We begin with a Torrontés from the highest elevation wine region in the world, next a Pinot Noir from Patagonia and an incredible Malbec from an innovative Mendoza winery, followed by a red blend from an emerging wine region of the country, and finally a blend that is winning awards across the world.
Our tastings are in our wine space in the beautiful tree-lined Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires, famous for its great dining, street-side cafes, plazas and active art and design scene.  We highly recommend having dinner afterwards at one of the nearby restaurants.    
The tasting is conducted every Tuesday and Friday evening beginning at 5 PM and lasts 2.5-3 hours
