Intrepid Sightseeing

  • Think you know your Malbec? Become a bona fide expert in Argentine wine with a customized lesson and tasting session, led by a local connoisseur who truly knows the ways of the grape. Sneak away to a hidden wine cellar where you’ll get your wine 101 training underway — paired, of course, with some samples of that delicious drink (purely for research, of course!). Finish it all off with a coffee break at one of the coolest cafés in Buenos Aires.

  • The Dutch don't talk much about their food, unless it’s about pancakes! Pannekoeken are a traditional Dutch treat — sometimes sweet, sometimes savoury, but always delicious! Enjoy this two-hour pancake lunch with David de Slingeraar, your cook, in an historic landmark, the Karthuizerhof — a 14th century monastery turned into 20th century subsidised housing and open garden space. David is 45 years old and has lived in A’dam his whole life (as have four generations of de Slingeraars before him). He has some Jewish history — hence the name David “the slinger” — but spends most of his time now slinging food for people in the local neighbourhood he knows so well. The Dutch base their meals on what they call “the trinity”: two veggies and a meat (oh, and don’t forget the cheese, please!), and David will teach you about these traditions in Dutch cuisine as you enjoy a classic meal of pannekoeken. He looks forward to welcoming you into his home for a tasty Dutch meal.
