Welcome to Pachamama Argentine Cooking Experience!
Get ready to be part of the real Argentinean cuisine with your own hands.
In the center of a quiet, cozy and touristy neighborhood of Buenos Aires, a cooking space specially designed for this experience awaits you.
We will start by sharing a "picada" that includes traditional preserves and homemade breads as a welcome, while we learn about the history of Argentine cuisine. Then we put our hands in the dough!
We will all cook a four step Argentine menu together which consists of: chipá (Snack), meat empanadas with homemade dough and chimichurri (entry), humita stew & braised veal (main course) and flamed dulce de leche crepes “Bodegón style" (dessert). Besides we will not only learn traditional recipes from our country, but also about their history and origin.
Finally, following the customs and traditions of our country, we will share around the table everything we cooked in an intimate and casual atmosphere accompanied by selected wines.
Events are held for private groups and/or special occasions with the possibility of adjusting the menu. Inquire by message.

The place is located in Cañitas: one of the nicest and most calm Palermo districts. (Some people call it a “pleasant little enclave, a miniature version of Alto Palermo.”) Palermo is Buenos Aires largest barrio and one of its most walkable one. A really interesting destination for foodies, art fans, shopaholics and revelers alike. Popular with expats, the area has increasingly become populated with locals as well, and today is a veritable melting pot of culture and coolness. It is really easy to come and very safe to walk around our neighborhood. We are located 15 blocks away from Plaza Italia and four blocks away from Lisandro de la Torre´s train station. Nearby our place you will be able to find lots of interesting streets with shops, bars, restaurants. We are 500mts away from “Los bosques de Palermo”, the largest and nicest green area of Buenos Aires. It can be reached by the following local buses: 15,29,55,59,60,118 (They reach Luis Maria Campos Street) and stop three blocks away from our place. It is also possible to arrive by Train (Linea Mitre) since we are four blocks away from the Lisandro de la Torre station.
