Argentina Cooking Vacations and Culinary Tours
For true adventure and diversity, enjoy a cookery vacation through Argentina. As one of the largest countries in South America, Argentine cooking styles, food preparations and ingredients offer an exciting culinary vacation with a variety of cooking classes, wine tours, and cooking styles for both urban as well as metropolitan foods. Argentine cuisine is influenced not only by cultural tastes and available foods and spices of Argentina, but the influences of immigrants from France, Italy, Spain and neighboring Latin American countries. No culinary tour through Argentina would be complete without learning how to cook tamales, empanadas, and culinary favorites like marzipan. A wine tour through Argentina's Cuyo region introduces discriminating palates to Cabernet, Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. French, Spanish and Italian wines are popular throughout Argentina and provide a fitting finale to foodie tours throughout her regions.
From grilled meats or asado barbecue style cooking in the Patagonian region to the high protein diets common in Central Argentina, individuals taking a cooking vacation through Argentina experience a cornucopia of tastes, flavors and cooking styles. In Buenos Aires, learn to cook dishes bursting with salamis, chorizo and cheese, or enjoy fish dishes common along the coastal region. From the inclusion of dairy products like milk and cheese in dishes popular in Central Argentina to the more rustic and basic cooking styles of the northwest region influenced by the indigenous Inca tribes, cooking in Argentina is filled with excitement, traditional styles and ingredients.
