What you'll do

Welcome to Pachamama: Argentine Online Coooking Experience!

Prepare yourselves to be part of a real Argentine Cooking experience with your own hands:

We will start learning about the history and secrets about empanadas. Then we will have the cooking class: we will cook all together the dough and the classic meat filling (including different versions and all the secrets) . Besides we will be doing my Grandfather´s traditional Argentine Chimichurri Sauce recipe, the most desired sauce in our country.

Finally, Iwill be showing you both how to bake and fry the empanadas. As an Argentinean tradition we will share all together what we have cooked pairing the meal with a cup of Wine (or mate) in a nice and friendly environment.

Once the class finishes I will provide you with the recipes and as a gift 4 other Argentine traditional recipes which I teach in my regular Buenos Aires airbnb experience.

While we cook, I will also be showing you how we prepare the Mate, a little bit of it´s history and details of how it is part of every Argentine´s life.

This is my regular experience in Buenos Aires:

Influenced by childhood memories with my grandparents, I decided to start my studies as a professional Cook.

After several years 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.

Empanadas are not only my favorite meal. It is also a meal that represents Argentine people. It is the memory of a Sunday together with my family cooking and sharing. This memories encouraged me to create an Argentine Cooking Experience at my home.

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.

Absolutely loved this class. It was my first Airbnb online experience, and it blew away all of my expectations! Fran was welcoming and walked us through everything. He would even ask to see our progress so we could get personalized tips about our cooking. Highly recommended!

I super enjoyed this activity! Fran is an excellent host, very welcoming with a true passion and talent for cooking and food. I'm a good eater of empanadas but I've never done myself from scratch and with Fran's guidance the result was outstanding! The empanadas I cooked look like "gourmet style", the taste was delicious!!! My boyfriend was also impressed, we ate them all! Thank you Fran for making me a master chef for an evening, I will keep doing your recipe, the chimichurri was so yummy!
