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.
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 and enjoying some street art along the way.
Tours run Monday through Friday from 10am to about 3pm or 3:30pm at the latest 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 can even send you instructions in Spanish so you can print out to give to your driver, but finding us is very easy since we are located in the heart of the very fashionable Palermo Viejo barrio (neighborhood) of Buenos Aires.
