Teresita's Culinary Tour – Buenos Aires, Arg
Arrive to Teresita's Home – Begin With Visit To The Local Bakery
Arrive to Adrogue, a town buried deep in the Argentine culture. We start our journey by walking to a local bakery for a comprehensive lesson of traditional Argentine pastries and breads. See the variety of facturas (pastres in Castellano), and learn the difference between styles of Medialunas (famous Argentine croissants).
Visit to the local Butcher shop
Interested to know why Argentina is world famous for its beef? We also make a short stop at a local butcher's shop to learn the various cuts of meat in Argentine.
Visit to a local Gourmet Restaurant
Next, we make a stop at a local restaurant for a short visit with the chef. We peak into his kitchen to learn what is the daily special he is prepping. We have a glass of champagne at his gracious gourmet restaurant (coffee for those who think having champagne at 11:00 am is too early!) and we continue with our journey…
Visit to a the local outdoor Market
We continue walking to the Adrogue outdoor market, a colorful outdoor food market where locals gather to talk and buy what local farmers bring fresh that morning. For a fantastic source of insider's information; Teresita will go over the names of different fruits, vegetables, fish, poultry, meat cuts, and South American spices throughout the fair. Peak into the Argentine culture and watch what goes on at this very traditional market. Stands go for several blocks and the area is closed to traffic.
The whole scenery is a must see if you are the "foddie" type of traveler; fresh fish, colorful fruits and vegetables, and a wide variety of small stands displaying all kind of spices and herbs is the reason why we choose to bring you here. The food and its creative and cheerful display speaks for itself. There is always more to these type of food markets than produce and artisanal food, it is a true reflection of the Argentine culture. (Duration 30-45 minutes)
