Join your local host Gabriela in her apartment in the Belgrano neighborhood of Buenos Aires for a traditional empanada cooking lesson. Over a welcome glass of wine or beer, enjoy a picada – a traditional Argentinian platter of cheeses, jams, and nuts – on Gabriela’s large balcony. After your welcome beverage and snacks, you will join Gabriela for your hands-on cooking lesson. Learn how to best prepare the meat as Gabriela shares her secrets for how to perfect the empanada filling. You will learn to prepare three different fillings, which might include a chicken, onion and leek filling, a zucchini, onion and cheese filling, and the traditional Argentinian cheese and jam filling. After you’ve finished cooking, enjoy your empanadas served alongside a fresh salad. End your meal with a dessert of chocotorta, a traditional Argentinian layered cake of chocolate, biscuits and dulce de leche, served with coffee if desired.
