This lesson is just perfect. I will give this over 10 points by 10. I actually had a lesson from Cecilia and Mercedes, who are professional for Empanadas and relatives of Silvia. The garden which the lesson takes place in is beautiful and the hosts are really nice. Cecilia, Silvia`s aunt and professional for Empanadas, is considerate for guests and is willing to give a lot of information of Empanadas and the culture of Argentina and Salta. For some reason, Silvia didn`t do the lesson but Cecilia and Mercedes did. Mercedes helped to translate Cecilia`s Spanish to English. Mercedes is good at English, so that everything was easy to understand and clear. Do not worry if you don`t speak Spanish :) I definitely recommend this lesson to other guests :) This will give you a special experience to have the traditional food of Argentina and the culture of Argentina.

I will say this, the empanadas we made were the best we had in all of Argentina! We had a lovely group of 5 for the class. It was a beautiful day in the garden, wonderful company that shared many laughs and food that we made and wine. What pleasure! A real unique and fun experience for us. One gentleman in our group from Ireland said, as he left "I really needed that." So true, sums it up perfectly.

This was our favourite lunch in Salta in terms of taste, company and value for money! Sylvia and Cecília were both very welcoming and taught us both how to create the most delicious empanadas, as well as gave us the confidence to try conversational Spanish. We’d thoroughly recommend this experience!
