I was here with my daughter and grand daughter early March 2017. It was an absolute joy and great learning experience. Norma puts you at ease while you are chopping, stirring and learning. Even though we could only attend on a Monday, when she is actually closed, she made an exception for us.

We spent a half day with Norma and two friends we had recently met learning some basic Argentinian cooking including empanadas, lentil stew and cookies called alfajores. We had a terrific time with Norma. She is knowledgeable, warm and gracious. Her English, and of course, Spanish, is excellent, as are her cooking skills. We met at her apartment where the... More

Norma is the like the cool tia you wish you had in Buenos Aires! Her cooking class was one of the best experiences we had while visiting the city. We sincerely appreciated her time, effort, and energy. This is a lovely experience for those who enjoy cooking and want to learn proper techniques and tips. For those that simply enjoy... More

The cooking class is great. Norma is fluent in English so it is not a problem for non-Spanish speakers to follow her instruction. Timing is controlled perfectly, she organised everything well. We made three dishes during the class and the best part of it is that we started everything form scratch, e.g. the dough for empanadas. When we were waiting... More

The class takes place in Norma's home which has beautiful views of the city and is really spacious. Norma makes the class interactive and fun. We made 3 dishes and then ate our food with wine and tea tasting. I'd highly recommend the class - Norma is super professional in the booking process. A great addition to your BA itinerary.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We learned how to make some traditional foods. We all participated in the preparation of lunch and were rewarded with having made a excellent meal for ourselves. Norma is an excellent teacher and hostess, making everyone feel welcome.

This was a fun way to spend a few hours with other travelers. We made some delicious food that's relatively easy to make. This is also one of the rare opportunities to try mate, the national drink (I believe) since it's normally served at homes and not usually available in restaurants. A bonus is that the view is absolutely beautiful,... More

Three friends and I enjoyed the class with Norma. We all cook lots so I would have to describe it as more an 'experience' class than a cooking class. It was a little disappointing that some key ingredients are store bought and/or prepped before arrival and this was easily our most expensive activity in BA. Despite that, we had lots... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
