Learn from a local chef how to cook some of Argentina's favourite savouries and sweets in a convivial atmosphere. 

Although known for long lunches and dinners which run into the small hours, the Argentines' love for traditional snacks and sweets runs deep.  Your cookery class in upmarket Palermo Hollywood – bulging with bars and restaurants -  is a sociable occasion hosted by a chef and sommelier. Learn all about the national addiction to empanadas, savoury pastries filled with chicken, beef or vegetables, which can be cooked using different techniques.

Prepare your own from scratch. As an added bonus and to load up the calories, learn to make the national dessert sauce dulce de leche whilst sampling some of Argentina's delectable wines, from Salta, Mendoza and Patagonia.

Alternatively, get to grips with some of the other Argentinian mouth-watering snacks. You'll be introduced to the national bond with street food and prepare your own choripán of homemade bread and fine quality local sausage. It's the nation's most popular filler, delicious when accompanied by chimichurri or salsa criolla.
