Description

Learn about the food and culture of Argentina on this 5-hour, small-group tour in the beautiful Palermo Viejo neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Visit butchers, bakers, wine shops, and more before learning how to make chimichurri, Asado, and other delectable dishes. 

Relax and enjoy the delicious foods you have helped to prepare in an amazing large home that was initially a bakery at the turn of the century, car repair shop, art gallery and sculpting studio and workshop, and now a large loft home with a professional kitchen in an open floor plan with a lovely garden equipped with a grill and wood-burning oven.

Itinerary

Welcome Home!

You will be arriving in a private home in the fashionable neighborhood of Palermo Viejo

Welcome to my home! Here we'll introduce ourselves and I'll explain what is in store for all of us for the rest of the day. We will start by lighting up the grill and then, with the help of a couple of volunteers, we will make the chimichurri. After that, we are ready to start our walking tour of the neighborhood.

The Neighborhood

As we walk, you will learn how the neighborhood changed from a sleepy residential part of town with low-level housing and cobblestone streets to Argentina's hottest and trendiest neighborhood.

You will learn how Argentina's most dramatic financial crisis helped change this neighborhood from a sleepy residential off-the-beaten-path area to one of the most popular neighborhoods in the city.

Plaza Inmigrantes de Armenia

This plaza has a long history that mirrors its neighborhood's fate.

From here I can show you just how this neighborhood changed from a seedy unattractive place to what it is today.

The Butcher Shop

Walking towards the butcher shop, we will stop to admire some local street art.

We will then buy the main cut of meat for the day and walk towards the wine shop while admiring some more street art and taking pictures along the way.

The Wine Shop

A very charming local wine shop with an interior patio and garden.

This is the perfect place to stop and enjoy a little wine sample before deciding on the bottles to take back to the house. Along the way towards the wine shop we will have more street art stops.

Fresh Bread

On the way back to the house we will stop to pick up some freshly baked bread!

By this time we are hungry and are looking forward to eating lunch. We have the last stop before reaching the house to pick up some freshly baked bread.

Ready to Eat!

Arriving at the house we distribute our purchases to the grill master and start prepping the rest of the food.

We will have a "picada" and we will make a "Fernandito" to wash it down with while hearing about Italy's contribution to the local culture.
You will then help put the salad together and we can admire and talk about all of the cuts of steak and pork that are on the grill.
We can then sit down to eat what will most likely be the best meal of your entire trip!
We will finish off with a local traditional dessert and learn our last local cultural custom of how Argentine's say goodbye to friends.
