This class was so great! Norma is the best teacher and this was hands down the most flavorful food I have tried in Argentina. She walks you through everything step by step and provides a copy of all the recipes (and some extras) to all students. I highly recommend regardless of your cooking skills! It was a great opportunity to... More

This cooking class is a MUST DO. As a self-proclaimed lover of food and culture, I spent a lot of time searching for the best Argentine cooking class to take. Norma's laid-back hospitality, but incredibly knowledgeable background of cuisine made this class an extremely enjoyable and educational opportunity. As a class, we shared laughs, wine, empanadas and a wonderful afternoon... More

Had a great time cooking with Norma. She welcomed us in and we started right in prepping and cooking. What a great lunch we made for ourselves along with a couple of Argentina wines. Remember to pinch and twist close the empanadas!

We had a wonderful time learning how to cook classic Argentinian food with Norma, making empanadas, tapioca cheese bites, and alfajores. It was a small class of five and very hands on with lots of fun and laughs. Norma is delightful, so warm and friendly. We enjoyed eating our creations with lovely wine and Mate tasting. Definitely a highlight of... More

We enjoyed both the cooking lesson and having the chance to visit with Norma. The meal was delicious and we look forward to trying our new cooking skills when we get home. Norma also provided her recipe book with many delicious sounding dishes.

Norma is so very welcoming, and clearly passionate about what does. The class was informal, yet informative, and the food was outstanding. Best empanadas ever! We were thrilled with the whole experience, and loved getting to know more about Norma and her passion for cooking. I particularly enjoyed my first experience of mate, learning about the ritual in a comfortable... More

Norma's apartment is beautiful and she is the best of hostesses! We took the cooking class with five other (international) travelers and together cooked some of the tastiest treats (empanadas and alfajores) we had in our travels. Norma is a wonderful teacher and the process is not in the least intimidating. We shared the results of our efforts - Norma... More

Some family members and I took a private cooking class with Norma. Everything worked out great and we had a fantastic time learning to cook a variety of dishes. I was travelling with a large group and Norma was really flexible with me in trying to find a scheduling option. She was also accommodating in switching the menu slightly when... More

We had a great time attending this cooking class with Norma. She was a delight and it was a great opportunity to learn a little bit more about Argentine cooking. If you're into something experiential and low key, this is a great class to take. We were able to meet in her home, meet some great people, learn a bit... More

We were sweltering in the Buenos Aires heat and searching for a daytime activity that would expose us to Argentinian culture without all the sweat. We were fortunate to stumble upon Norma's classes here on TripAdvisor, and we are SO glad we did this! The other reviews are accurate - the class was very fun, we got to eat great... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
