about Teresita & her husband Raul
Teresita and Raul have been married for more than 35 years, they have 3 children and 3 granddaughters. Teresita owned and operated a grammar school for 20+ years and Raul is a retired pediatric doctor. Together they run a bed and breakfast and receive people from all of over the world that share the common interest of authentic culinary findings.
Teresita is an expert in “comida criolla,” native Latin American cuisine, Teresita’s experience with Latin American cooking is vast. And her amazing skills for home-style cooking with the freshest regional ingredients come across in every dish she prepares. Teresita love for Latin cuisine began when she attended Aileen Bovio Cooking School back in the 70’s. She has also traveled extensively to small almost extinct villages observing and learning cooking techniques from south American indigenous people in remote areas in the north of Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Chile. Teresita’s passion for teaching is largely due to her background in education. For more than 20 years, she owned and operated one of the leading grammar prep schools in her town of Adrogue. It’s because teaching is in her blood that she decided to open her kitchen and welcome those interested in learning about food and wine from Argentina.
“My classes are for those interested in learning more than just a recipe. They’re for curious people like me. Whenever I travel my main focus is always food. You learn so much about cultures by simply watching what people eat. And that’s what I try to bring to each of my classes: a cultural experience that would never be achieved in a static and artificial classroom.” – Teresita
