One of the best ways to explore a new city and learn about their culture is through food, and on this Virtual Cooking Class, you will be travelling with your senses to South America.

Learn how to make one of the most popular pastries in Argentina - ‘Alfajores’.

They are an Argentine speciality, extremely popular across the country that has grown to become a large part of Argentina’s food culture. Traditional “alfajores” consist of two round, sweet, fluffy biscuits made from wheat flour or corn starch, and are stuck together with dulce de leche, which can be optionally covered with a layer of chocolate or powdered sugar, and a touch of coconut flakes all around it.

Though they are considered a confection or a pastry, any local will tell you there is no such thing as the ‘right time to eat them’. They are perfect at breakfast, with a coffee or tea in the afternoon, as a decadent dessert, or even as a late-night snack.

On this Virtual Cooking Class, prep alfajores side by side with your instructor on a seamless video call. Your chef will adapt to your pace, guide you step by step, and share their best tips to make the best alfajores, while telling you about life in Argentina and its rich culinary history. If you have a sweet tooth or want to explore new foods, these treats are a must-try!

They are a divine treat and will taste even better when you make them yourself.

Enjoy this cooking experience with your family, friends, and colleagues. It also makes a great gift experience!
