What To Expect
Spend a memorable evening with one of Mendoza's top chef: learn how to cook traditional local dishes right in her home kitchen! Learn some barbecue secrets and create your own flavour of empanada. Don't miss the opportunity of sampling the best local wines.
Get inside a local Mendocino's home and see how they live and eat. But we are not talking about just any Mendocino. This is Laura Pinna's house, and Laura is one of Mendoza's most important chefs, having worked in over 10 different countries, cooking for some of the most prestigious foodies in the world, including Argentina's most renowned chef, Francis Mallmann.
On this Mendoza tour, you'll head into her kitchen and learn from the master herself how to cook some of the tastiest and most traditional dishes in the region. We'll start with some empanadas (a traditional baked pastry) and Laura will offer you some delicious wine to start the evening. We'll also taste some organic seasonal vegetables and you'll get to pick the flavours you like the best to create your own empanada specialty.
Then, it's onto a true culinary classic. Every country has its own favourite recipe, but in Argentina, asados are the one and only Sunday lunch. Prepare yourself to discover a completely new point of view about grilled food, barbeques, and roasted beef: it's the best way to introduce yourself into the Argentinean culture.
You'll learn from Laura every detail about the different meat cuts, and the traditional local techniques to light a wood fire. As well, you'll get a lesson in preparing a typical criolla salad and the classic dessert that comes after a marvelous steak. And of course, every step will be accompanied by some of the best wines of Mendoza (another local tradition). Come and enjoy the secrets of Laura's kitchen, and taste real local food. You simply can't get anywhere else!
