Cooking Class Information

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.

About Host



My name is Franco Nesossi. Influenced by childhood memories with my grandparents, I decided to start my studies as a professional Cook.

After several years of cooking experiences abroad, working at different restaurants, caterings and other gastronomic businesses I decided to get together two of my biggest passions: Cooking and Teaching.

I have traveled a lot during my life. Everywhere I have gone, most of my memories include great meals, markets and cooking local dishes with other people. I love receiving travelers at my cooking experience and sharing / talking about food, culture, life, while eating and enjoying.
