Mataderos Feria

03 Jul
Mataderos Fair, Wine and Private Asado in a Chef’s Home! (Sundays only)
Your guide (who is also a sommelier) will pick you up at your Buenos Aires hotel for the drive to the outskirts of the City (we also recommend taht you attend the San Telmo fair in the morning and we find you there at 3pm for transport to Mataderos).
The Mataderos Fair is hugely popular with locals and very untouristy where you will mingle to watch Chacarera and Folklore bands and musicians, not forgetting the famous gauchos and horse races. You will taste vino patero, locro, empanadas and other Argentine delights. If you are looking for typical Argentine crafts, the feria is the place and your guide will help you choose and negotiate.
You are then invited to attend an asado in the private home of a professional chef (who caters for Madam Kirchner no less), a unique taste of an Argentinean lunch – Will you try the mollejas?  The food is all home-cooked, from chimi to bread and paired perfectly with a selection of Argentinean wines provided by the guide/sommelier (whatever you don’t finish from the bottle you can take away). He is also a divine pastry chef – enough said! After a great day out, your private driver will be waiting to return you to your hotel.
