    The Argentine Experience was great food and great fun. Katrina was our host, and she welcomed us at the door. She was humorous and entertaining, while giving us lots of information about Argentinian dining, food, drink and culture. The venue was picturesque and comfortable. Making empanadas was a great way to start off the evening, as we had lively competition to execute the best looking creation! Our fellow diners were friendly and interesting. Oh, yes, and the food was excellent! We were full of steak and all the sides, including generous wine pairings and 3 desserts. It was a wonderful way to spend our first evening in Buenos Aires.

    We did the wine mixology with empanada making followed by steak dinner , dessert , mate tea and alfahores. We were a full group. Everyone was laughing and having a great time. This was a fun evening, totally unexpected. Very entertaining! Thank you so much Carla and Michael and our host instructor, sorry forgot her name.

    I booked this event for the last night of a 22 day cruise. There were 17 of us who attended. The food was great, the presenters and waiters/waitresses were awesome! We learned how to make empanadas and also about other Argentinian foods, beverages and customs. It was a great way to cap off our cruise.

    This was a wonderful experience and a highlight of our trip to Buenos Aires! The staff was fun and engaging. The food was extremely well executed and delicious! Yes, it's touristy but that doesn't detract in any way from the quality of the experience!
