    I'm looking for suggestions on what to do in Buenos Aires for 120 hours. We just booked a trip to Buenos Aires using BA miles for AA first class for 4 nights and 5 days.

    We are very interested in a cooking class, dining, wine tasting/education, and museums (I'm sure I will find all I need on this).

    If you can share any experience on cooking classes, dining, or wine tastings/education events in Buenos Aires, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Appreciate any advice you can provide.

    Our house expert is Gaucho, who is a wine dealer there. You can see some of his posts elsewhere in this forum. He'll be along shortly. I hate to see a referral to the Argentina Forum on FT, but there he is Gaucho100k.

    Sorry to the belated response... Ive been on vacation for 3 weeks and Im not still caught up with all the backlog, so little time for Internet.....

    For wine tastings, please contact me via PM or email and I will be able to assist you.

    With regards to cooking classes, I do have a couple of contacts in the industry but the issue is that you need to have a decent sized group for this to make sense. The Chefs I work with dont make a living teaching... they own succesfull restaurants so they are not set up as a cooking school... this means that classes with them are more fun, interactive and take place at nicer places, but the down side is that unless you are a decent sized group, the economics of this will be difficult to swallow.

    How many people in your party and what are your dates of travel..?

    Cheers,
    Alex / Gaucho
