Argentine Cooking Classes for Tourists
In the neighborhood of Chacarita, Buenos Aires, Azaí is a loft-type space especially designed for cooking and having a good time.

We have a professional, state of the art kitchen in which twelve people can comfortably cook simultaneously. You only need to bring a willingness to learn and have fun, we will provide all the rest, from cookware to aprons.

So as to ensure that the cooking process is experienced to the fullest, classes are interactive and the idea is for attendants to participate, but you can choose not to if you would rather relax and observe.

At the end of each class we share the table to have a degustation of the dishes previously cooked  accompanied by a glass of Argentine wine.

The menu:

  • Chipas (yucca root starch cheese bread)
  • Empanadas de carne y humita (sweet corn and meat hand pies).
  • Carbonada (typical argentine stew)
  • Panqueques de dulce de leche (Caramel flat pancakes) 

Duration: approximately 2:30 hours

The classes may be in Spanish, English or Portuguese


Azaí is located in Virrey Loreto 3795, right on the intersection with Charlone Street, in the neighborhood of Chacarita. It is two blocks (two hundred metres) away from the six corners formed by the Avenues Elcano, Alvarez Thomas, and Forest.

In the area where Azai stands there are many uneven streets and cul de sacs. This being the case, getting there might seem complicated. This is why we are giving you alternative ways of reaching Azai from different departing points throughout the city.
