The asado is an event when families and friends get together to share and experience the great food they have 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 AsadoAdventure is an open invitation to become part of the family and experience creating an Argentinian asado. Our food tour is organized into small intimate groups of up to 10 people, where you will be guided through the cooking and social traditions of the Argentine asado.
We invite you into our private residence that used to be a bakery, built in 1898. We will get to know each other a little and start making the chimichurri before heading out.
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 Palermo Viejo neighborhood and enjoying some street art along the way.
Picada – We offer dried and aged artisan salami from Tandil, pickles and some cheese with a Fernandito.
Salads – We serve our signature spinach, mango, and caramelized pecan salad. We will have seasonal variations as well.
Achuras – Grilled offal cuts are the opening salvo of meat before the main course and we also serve provoleta (grilled provolone cheese with herbs and pepper).
Wine – Every great asado has wine. We will purchase a bottle of wine per two people to share.
Main course – Delicious Argentine meat. We’ll go to the butcher, learn about the different cuts, and pick the ones that we like.
Dessert – Traditional Argentine desserts to discover and enjoy, followed by a round of mate, the famous herbal tea you drink through a metal straw.
