The Argentine Experience: Empanada Making, Steak, Wine, Alfajores and Mate
The night is designed to take your taste buds on a journey all around the country, with foods that you might come to Argentina expecting to try, and some surprises that you definitely were not expecting to try. Each and every product used is of the very best quality available, and paired with boutique wines that enhance every mouthful. All the recipes for everything in the experience is available to guests after the dinner, so you can recreate the magic back at home. Aside from wanting to showcase the very best of Argentine cuisine, the night is cleverly designed for travelers to meet travelers, and enjoy a real dinner party with no agenda, just to enjoy each other's company, share travel stories and eat and drink some of the best food and wine in the country.
First test your sense of smell in our 'aroma room,' where you have to try to identify 20 of the most common smells within the wines of Argentina. Then, Learn how to make, shake and create wine based cocktails made from red, white and rose wines and enjoy perfectly paired tapas to accompany each one. Finally, choose the cocktail you enjoy the most and make it in large version from scratch to take to dinner with you.
All the recipes will be available to you to take home at the end of the dinner so you can show off to friends and family on your return.

FUN FUN FUN
This was a lot of fun! You get to make empanadas, and some of the other food is cooked for you by professionals. Would do again.
Loved it. Super fun. Great food and drinks. I'm not sure I really learned anything but I had a great time.
Just wow. We feared this would be a touristy deal and it was. We feared we wouldn't come away with a lot of new cooking ideas we didn't. But darn it we had so much fun! This team brought the diners together in such a spirited and spirit-filled environment and we all had a ball. The mixology portion of the night was terrific and we did get some great new cocktail ideas there. And while we didn't learn a lot about cooking at the dining experience, the food was terrific and we had a gas hanging out at two large community tables. I cannot state it clearly enough: EVERYONE who works at the Buenos Aires Dining Experience comes together to ensure their guests have a ball and come away with a broader understanding of Argentinian culture.
