What you'll do

Welcome to Pachamama: Argentine Cooking Experience!

Prepare yourselves to be part of a real Argentine Cooking experience with your own hands:

In the center of a nice, cozy and calm Buenos Aires neighborhood, I will be waiting for you in my cooking space, especially designed to cook and enjoy this experience with everything we need.
We will start learning about Traditional Mate as a welcome, paired with a sweet and tasty Argentinean Alfajor. After that, we will have the cooking class: we will cook all together and learn about traditional recipes, their history and origins as well.

The experience includes a four-step menu: Chipá (Snack), Meat Empanadas & Chimichurri (Entry), Humita Stew (Main course) y Dulce de leche Crepes (Dessert).

Finally, as an Argentinean tradition we will sit all together at the table and share what we have cooked pairing the meal with local Wines in a nice and friendly environment.

Private groups and/or special celebrations can be arranged (even with special menu) by private message.

My name is Franco Nesossi. Influenced by childhood memories with my grandparents, I decided to start my studies as a professional Cook.

After several years of cooking experiences abroad, working at different restaurants, caterings and other gastronomic businesses I decided to get together two of my biggest passions: Cooking and Teaching.

I have traveled a lot during my life. Everywhere I have gone, most of my memories include great meals, markets and cooking local dishes with other people. I love receiving travelers at my cooking experience and sharing / talking about food, culture, life, while eating and enjoying.

Empanadas are not only my favorite meal. It is also a meal that represents Argentine people. It is the memory of a Sunday together with my family cooking and sharing. These memories encouraged me to create an Argentine Cooking Experience for travelers.

Where you'll be

The place is located in Cañitas: one of the nicest and most calm parts of Palermo. (Some people call it a “pleasant little enclave, a miniature version of Alto Palermo.”)

Palermo is Buenos Aires largest barrio and one of its most walkable one. A really interesting destination for foodies, art fans, shopaholics and revelers alike. Popular with expats, the area has increasingly become populated with locals as well, and today is a veritable melting pot of culture and coolness.

It is really easy to come and very safe to walk around our neighborhood. We are located 15 blocks away from Plaza Italia and four blocks away from Lisandro de la Torre´s train station.

Nearby our place you will be able to find lots of interesting streets with shops, bars, restaurants. We are 500mts away from “Los bosques de Palermo”, the largest and nicest green area of Buenos Aires.

I loved this class! Fran was a great host and he was very accommodating to our dietary needs (vegetarian and sugar free) and to someone else who had a gluten free diet. The food was really good and I will definitely make the recipes again on my own. And what I like is he sent the recipes right away. He was very patient, calm, kind, and was always in control. I would recommend this class.

Fun way to spend an afternoon and learn about the culture and food of Argentina. Appreciate Fran's ability to customize the menu to meet dietary restrictions and I learned techniques and tips that I can apply to my everyday cooking.

You can’t go wrong with this experience, Francesco is great, very personable and a great teacher with a passion for what he does. An awesome class! I’ll take another from him the next time I come to Argentina. He also gives great recommendations on where to find the best food in Buenos Aires, so go early in your visit.

This was both interesting & fun. We all participated in the cooking & got some useful tips & recipes from an experienced chef. Fran is clearly passionate about food & teaching. Part of the week he teaches locals & he hosts these lunches to allow him to do that. We made new friends & were pretty pleased with how our lunch turned out, assisted by some local wine. Watching my engineer husband concentrate on flipping a pancake was magic!

Fran's class was exceptional! We learned many new things and felt very immersed in the culture. We had a great time getting to know Fran, as well as the others in the class. The food we cooked was amazing! I would highly highly recommend.
