What you'll learn in this international cooking class:

Mirta’s zest for life and passion for her country of Argentina will immediately impress you as she welcomes you to her art-filled home. She will greet you with a hot cup of mate, the traditional herbal tea of Argentina, along with an assortment of snacks, which may include toasted Argentinian bread, artisanal cheeses and charcuterie from her local Argentinian butcher, and her homemade dulce de membrillo (quince paste and jelly). 

She will then lead you through the mate ceremony, which will incorporate her gorgeous collection of handmade mate cups and utensils. 

Mirta learned to cook while growing up in the mountainous wine country of Mendoza and was influenced by her family’s Spanish and Italian heritage. Her artistry and love of cooking shines through in all of her dishes, which are each presented beautifully and with a deep respect for the history and traditions behind them. At the end of the day you’ll go home newly inspired with all the recipes and a shopping guide to Mirta’s favorite food markets.
