• Shop for all the Asado ingredients just like a local, then learn how to prep the meat and build the fire, before finally enjoying the delicious lunch prepared by a master Parrillero (local grill master)
• Red wine is included
• Visit the butcher shop, the bakery, and the wine store, all the while walking the cobblestone streets of Palermo Viejo. Then head back to a local home to help prepare the Asado
• Communal dining experience for up to 6 people
• Frank loves to eat and to travel, and also ran a very popular chili cookoff in Buenos Aires to raise funds for nonprofit organizations

About your host, Frank: My name is Frank and I've been living in Argentina since 1999. Back in 2001 I left the corporate world and took my first entrepreneurial steps. I helped start an organic preserves brand and Argentina’s first gourmet cookie brand. Now I want to share Argentina's culinary secrets with you.
