Asado has been a tradition and pride of Argentina since this country was born and now, more than ever represents us worldwide. We will explain to our guests the different cuts of meat, how to prepare them, and cook them on the Argentinian charcoal grill also known as "parrilla". The proper selection of wood, the right temperature of the grill, and even the proper distance between the meat and coals play an important role in the final result. All this will take place while we share some cheese, charcuterie, and a classic Argentinian aperitif, the fernet. Brought to Argentina by the first Italian emigrants Fernet has been a staple every since.

This was really fun and Maria was a good teacher. The class takes place in a very small apartment with a small kitchen, so we all had to take turns with some of the actual cooking tasks, but there was plenty for everyone to do. They also provided wine for everyone so that was an added perk. Everything was delicious!

Myriam is a great hostess. We immediately felt welcome. We were a large group of over 10 people from all over the world. The wine tasting, the preparation of the empanadas and the communication were really fun. And then a one-hour tour of the city. Simply great. Thank you Myriam Absolute recommendation from me.

Fabulous time. Unbelievable food and so much fun. Met a group of fellow travellers and laughed all night while me made empenadas and ate perfectly cooked steak and lovely wines. The team that look after you are exceptional.

Shir is delightful and an excellent instructed. The experience was more than we expected.

Maria was fantastic. We really enjoyed the cookery class and highly recommend it.
