Trip overview

Let’s be real: eating amazing food in foreign countries is one of the best things about travelling. 

How about taking it a step further and mastering those mouth-watering dishes so you can impress everyone back home?

On this done-for-you trip, you’ll get everything you need to live in Buenos Aires while learning to cook like an Argentinian, including: 

  • Cooking course. Master 8 dishes over 4 intense training sessions every week. These group courses focus on local and international cuisine to level up your kitchen skills whether you’re a beginner or an expert. And the best part: you get to take home each of your tasty creations! 
  • Local cultural experiences. To help you get into the swing of Argentine culture, you’ll get 3-5 cultural activities included every week. These may include things like a city tour, Tigre and delta tour, city graffiti tour, pub crawl & night out with your students…the list goes on. 
  • Private accommodation. Relax in your private room in a shared apartment after sweating it out in the kitchen in one of the most popular neighbourhoods in the city.
  • Free Tango lessons. Master the Tango in the city where it was born with free tango lessons included in your trip. 

Any serious foodie has Argentina, and particularly Buenos Aires, high up on their to-do list. 

Imagine a blend of Spanish and Italian cuisine, thrown into a crockpot with indigenous traditions and ingredients, seasoned with influences from around the world, and left to simmer for a couple centuries. And you’ve got an idea of the food scene in Argentina.   

While most travellers are left in awe of the intricacy and flavour of Argentinian food, you’ll learn all the tips, tricks, and local secrets on this course. 

Can you picture your life in Buenos Aires? You marvel every day at living in one of the safest and most beautiful cities in South America. You could spend a lifetime exploring the diverse neighbourhoods, thriving art scene, or perfecting the tango on sultry nights in a local milonga (tango club). 

Your cooking classes are much more impactful than you thought, too. You’re learning from a seasoned chef with 30 years of culinary experience at one of the top culinary institutes in Latin America! 

This is your shortcut to go from home cook to home chef, with a solid dose of Argentinian magic in your back pocket. 

So, once you’ve gained culinary confidence in Argentina, you’ll be able to wing it with whatever ingredients you have on hand and end up with a mouth-watering, Argentinian inspired meal. 

This is the souvenir that just gets better. Impress that special someone back home with an authentic Argentinian meal – cooked just the way the locals showed you – while wooing them with your stories of an adventure abroad…. 

This trip is perfect for you’re looking for a deeper connection on your trip to Argentina. There’s so much to be learned about a culture from the food they eat and how it’s prepared. 

Besides, being able to cook like an Argentinian is a wicked secret weapon in your arsenal of tricks up your sleeve. 

When you go with Global, you get the full experience for a fraction of the hassle. We offer the complete package for learning how to cook like an Argentinian in Buenos Aires. 

Our team will help you with the essentials you need to start your new journey with a bang! Including helping you with visas, enrolling you in classes, securing your accommodation, and a whole lot more.

Trip details

This is an intensive cookery course, but to say that belittles what it truly is. This is not about learning to cook, this is about learning the art of cooking. This course is about getting to know your produce, how to treat each individual element of your dish and bring them all together to create something far more than the sum of its parts. The course covers the full menu, from light, explosive amuse-bouches, to delicate desserts that dance on the tongue. 

The group sessions are great fun and important to learn the fundamentals of the kitchen! Focusing on the skills needed to make both international and local cuisine are what these lessons are all about. If you are a world-class pastry chef in the making, then your incredible instructor will help you break down every element of this corner of the kitchen. And honestly, while it is not for everyone, there is pretty much no better place in the world to learn about cooking. Argentina is hands-down the queen of this!

You will arrive in Buenos Aires with the reassurance that you are many steps ahead of every other traveller in search of the same experience. It is tough to find accommodation as a traveller in Buenos Aires, so with everything taken care of before you arrive, you can get stuck into your studies and absorb the beauty and history of the city. You’ll be staying in the greatest areas of the city, either Palermo, Belgrano, Barrio Norte or Recoleta, each one bursting with character and packed with bars, restaurants and cultural experiences waiting to be discovered. The school also wants you to leave with a burning love of Buenos Aires, so you will be treated to a range of evening activities, designed to get you out exploring this glamorous city. 

If you want to explore Argentina or even South America further, then you couldn’t be in a better spot. A short ferry ride and you are in the laid back loveliness of Uruguay, a country that should never be overlooked. You are close to Iguazu Falls, a must-see natural wonder and you are flights or long bus journeys away from the south coast of Brazil, a whole adventure in itself. 

If the kitchen is part of your future, either in a professional or personal capacity, there could not be a better place to get started and learn the art of cookery. 

Requirements 

Be aged 18+.

What extra costs will I have? 

Flights, travel insurance, souvenirs, meals, vaccinations & spending money.

Accommodation

You’ll stay in a private room in a shared apartment with some of your other classmates. You’ll be in one of the trendier neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires – either Palermo, Belgrano, Barrio Norte or Recoleta.

Trip itinerary

Arrival

You will be collected from the airport and transferred to your accommodation for the week. If you choose to, arrive a few days early to acclimatise and explore Buenos Aires before your classes start in earnest.

Weekdays

Four days a week, your intensive cookery lessons take place between 3-11 pm. During this time you will participate in group lessons to go through the fundamentals of cooking and preparing a variety of international dishes. This is where your skills will elevate dramatically, where you will get to know your produce and your individual disciplines intimately. Not to be too zen about it, but this is where you will become one with the art of cooking, taking you from a cook to a chef. No matter how many weeks you choose to stay on the course, you will never repeat a dish, unless there is something you really wish to master and make your own.  Your lessons are all taught in English, however, there are Spanish language cooking lessons happening in tandem, so if you want to improve your Spanish skills, you are more than welcome to participate in them. There are also Spanish lessons available at the school for an additional cost, should you wish to improve your language skills while you are here.  When you are not in classes, our partners in Buenos Aires have arranged a whole series of cultural activities and city tours to get you to know the city much better and feel like you are becoming a true porteño (people of the port, the nickname for Buenos Aires residents). If your lessons and your cultural activities conflict, no problem, things can be rearranged to make sure you get the most out of this incredible cultural immersion.

Why Study

The main purpose of this trip is to get you cooking Argentinian dishes like an Argentinian. 

Our in-country partner’s teaching style focuses on ingredients and their uses instead of recreating recipe after recipe. Although you will learn some famous Argentinian dishes in the process. 

The idea here is to give you a good understanding of the different ingredients used, the role they play in the dish, and why it’s necessary. 

That way, your new cooking knowledge becomes ingrained in how you look at food. If you can’t find a certain ingredient you won’t panic and abandon the meal. Instead, you’ll know what role that ingredient plays in the dish and what to replace it with. 

On top of this, you’ll be learning from a pro chef with over 30 years of culinary experience. So you know you’re learning from one of the best. 

This trip is about much more than learning how to use a few ingredients. It’s about learning the art of cooking. You’ll get to know your produce, what role each element plays in the dish, and how to bring them all together to create a mouthwatering masterpiece.

You can learn more about the great referral rewards program inside your gWorld account once you join.

Can I bring my pet along?

At Global Work & Travel, we share a deep love for animals and fully understand the special bond you have with your pet. We recognise the challenges of embarking on a trip without them. Due to travel restrictions, requirements, and limited pet-friendly accommodations among our host organisations, we regretfully cannot facilitate their inclusion in the journey. However, many of our customers choose to entrust their pets to a family member or friend, embark on their adventure, and return home to wagging tails and furry cuddles.

What happens if I need to cancel my trip?

We know that life can get in the way of travel, so all our trips come with a great deal of flexibility. In most cases, if you cannot travel on your selected date, you can place your trip on hold to deal with whatever is holding you back, and continue in the future without incurring any penalty. You may also have the option of transferring to an entirely different trip and destination as well, or even transferring your trip to a friend or family member. In the event that you need to outright cancel your trip, if you give us 84* days notice you can do so with only a 50% cancellation fee. Your refund of the balance will come in the form of a Store Credit which you can put toward any other trip that we offer, including tours through third-party providers, as well as holidays through DealsAway.com, and is valid for 2 years from date of issue. As international travel can be complex, your options are based on the progress of your trip organisation and our support team can assist you in finding the best solution for your needs.
