    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.
