  • They say that food is the way to a person’s heart. Well, that is certainly the case in Argentina and Peru where national cuisine is treated with enormous pride and passion. And to their right, as both countries in their respective ways, have caught the world’s attention with exceptionally tasty and unique dishes.

    If Latin American cuisine tickles your fancy, you now have the opportunity to share the passion of cooking with the locals through the newly introduced ‘Spanish and cooking course’ at the AMAUTA Spanish school in Buenos Aires and Cusco. There is no better place to immerse yourself in the local culture than the kitchen, the center place for family socializing, while learning cooking techniques and recipes passed down from generation to generation.

    Discover the flavor of language with the Spanish & Cooking course!

    For a great insight into the Porteño culture, add these suggestions by ex-AMAUTA students to your to-do list when visiting the capital of culture of South America!

    1. Go Tango!

    4. Grill with top chefs!
      Argentina claims to have the highest quality meat in the world, and they grill the fine cuts to perfection anywhere you go. A parillada along with good wine and happiness is a very common way of socializing for Argentineans as this student’s testimonial points out. If you are not afraid to gain more weight while living in Buenos Aires, than finish your asado with an indulging ice-cream!

    In Western countries eating on the streets is not a usual sight due to all the regulations. Here in Buenos Aires all is a tit-bit different. Actually, outdoor eating in Buenos Aires is just as common as anywhere else in Argentina offering visitors one of those true delights, and cultural experiences, of travel in Argentina.

    Surrounded by out-door vendors and Empanadas in Buenos Aires!

    My roommate Gigi, an Argentinean girl who is able to do yoga, tai chi and kung-fu (I feel really safe here), knows how to make homemade empanadas as well. Yesterday she came home with bags full of cebollas, choclos, semillas and other verduras to make some to sell on the street. She had made arrangements for her and a friend to sell empanadas vegetarianas during a concert somewhere in the city. She took to it and while humming to Indian mantras she prepared them in record time. A few hours later she dressed up and went out with a box full of deliciously tasting empanadas.
