Cooking Class in Buenos Aires: Criolla

Are you a food enthusiast eager to explore the flavors of the Argentine kitchen? Look no further than the Criolla cooking class in Buenos Aires – a must-do experience!

After searching for a more intimate and interactive evening activity in Buenos Aires, I stumbled upon Criolla. It offered not just entertainment, but a delightful, engaging, and above all, mouthwatering experience.

How was the cooking class experience?

At 7:00 PM, our culinary adventure began in the vibrant Palermo district. Welcomed warmly by our hosts, we were ushered into a sleek, upscale kitchen where the chef awaited us eagerly. As a group of six, we received a brief introduction to the evening’s agenda and dove straight into our first hands-on experience: crafting a traditional Argentine drink.

The culinary journey continued with an array of Argentine delights on the menu, including a refreshing Argentine salad, a traditional herb sauce to complement the upcoming meat dish, and the intricate process of crafting Argentine empanada dough with various fillings.

Under the guidance of our skilled chef and alongside our fellow aspiring chefs, we embarked on each culinary creation, exchanging travel tales and forging new connections along the way. While not every dish was entirely crafted solo, the collaborative effort added to the camaraderie and learning experience.

Don’t worry if you’re not a kitchen whiz – the chef and his sidekick have got your back! While the main dish is all chef’s special, you’ll still get to dabble in some Argentine flavor fun. And when it comes to grilling, Argentines like to keep that part under wraps (literally!). So just sit back, relax, and get ready to dig into some serious yum!

From mastering the art of Argentine empanadas to creating the perfect flan caramel and indulging in the rich flavors of Malbec sauce, each recipe revealed the essence of Argentine cuisine. The wealth of knowledge gained left me inspired with endless possibilities to recreate these culinary delights at home.
