The Adventure

The asado is a time when families and friends get together to share and experience the great food they created. This is the complete essence of an Argentine asado: a cultural dining tradition handed down from generation to generation.

The Argentine asado represents a national identity
and a unique culture
with its own customs and rituals.

The Buenos Aires Asado Adventure is an open invitation to become a part of the family and experience creating an Argentinian asado. The tour is organized into small intimate groups (smaller than 10 people), where you will be guided through the cooking and social traditions of the Argentine asado.

Tour & Demonstration

We will invite you into a private residence, get to know each other a little and head off to visit the local butcher, baker, and wine merchant. We’ll buy our ingredients just like a local would go about organizing their own Argentine asado. You will also be getting a walking tour of the very hip and trendy neighborhood of Palermo Viejo.

Tours run Monday through Friday from 10am to 2pm or 3pm at the latest. We occasionally run tours on Saturday evenings from 5pm to 10pm. If you are interested, please let us know.

We can even arrange private transportation from your accommodation or any address within the city limits, including the Cruise Port Terminal to our home, as an option.

Bring a hat, sunglasses, and comfortable clothing, and shoes for a day of walking, cooking, drinking and eating. The walking tour is about 1 hour long.

We’ll give you a bottle of water before heading out shopping.

About us

I’m Max Carnage. Currently I also work at Logia (One of Buenos Aires’ most popular food trucks). I love to grill meat, “It’s part of every Argentine’s DNA”. The asado is a language of friendship, of family and camaraderie; It’s a perfect excuse to meet up with those closest to you, to meet new friends, share some wine and forget for a moment the stress and problems of everyday life.

My name is Agustín Pérez and I was born and raised in Buenos Aires. I started learning English on my own from a very early age through music and movies. I currently study in the School of Agriculture at the University of Buenos Aires, where I’m developing my thesis to obtain my engineer’s degree. I look forward to sharing my cultural heritage and customs with you.

My name is Carla Peluffo. I was born in the USA and I lived there until I was 9. I also lived in Chile and Mexico. I went to the University of Miami where I completed a double major in Journalism and Spanish, getting a Bachelor of Science in Communication. I love to travel, and hiking in California’s forests or sipping Malbec in Mendoza are some of my favorite things to do.

My name is Ivan, I`m an Actor and singer.
I lived in New York, first as a kid, and later on in life I got a Fulbright scholarship to study acting and music in the Big Apple.
I also lived in Italy, Germany, Algiers and Spain. I Can´t wait to share the secrets of our unique cuisine…
Maybe, if your up for it, I’ll also sing a few tangos and milongas while we drink mate and eat vigilantes.

We can even send you instructions in Spanish so you can print out to give to your driver, but it is very easy since we are located in the heart of the very fashionable Palermo Viejo.

Things do happen and we realize this. Please try to let us know if you would be coming in late.

This whole tour happens within the same neighborhood so we are never too far away.

Yes, and we don’t cancel for rain either, unless it’s very heavy. An Argentine asado doesn’t cancel for anything. This does take place in a private residence so in the case of increment weather we could eat indoors.
