Meet your Mariela and her home and then go to a local bakery and a delicatessen shop to buy the best local cheese. After that, take a bus to a local butcher and a greengrocer shop to buy fresh meat and vegetables for your cooking lesson.  Mariela offers a hands-on experience where you will get to cook along with her in her home kitchen. Since her kitchen is small, you might use the dining area for demonstrations and to prep the ingredients for your meal. You will learn to make an appetizer, a main dish and a local drink like fernet. For the meal, first you will be served a picada, a selection of finger foods such as different types of cheese, homemade sauces, spiced butter, and bread. This will be followed by tapa de asado (a meat roast with onions, peppers and red Argentinean wine) served with a side of mashed carrots, potatoes, pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Your meal will end with a sweet dessert. What a great way to learn about a country's history, cuisine, people and culture!
