Amid the majestic Andes mountains lies the Finca Adalgisa Hotel, Vineyard, and Winery. This gem is quietly situated in Chacras de Coria, a small village in the north province of Mendoza, Argentina. As you will find with a simple google search, we are not the first to be enchanted by the magical Finca Adalgisa and it’s prized attraction: a cooking class with chef Christina Brino. Hosted in an outdoor kitchen featuring a clay stove fueled by wood and fire, just adjacent to the the estate garden and vineyard, we embarked on a tasty journey with the charming Chef and her modern take on traditional Mendoza barbeque. Fresh, estate grown ingredients were featured throughout the night as we started from scratch making empanadas, garden fresh chimmichurri, fresh veggies, then ventured to grilling thick steaks on the open flame and finished with a caramelized fresh grilled fruit desert. The class was a casual blend of demonstration and hands on cooking techniques, accompanied by bountiful amounts of Finca Adalgisa’s opulent estate bottled wine(we really loved the malbec). This beautiful evening of cooking, eating, and drinking fine food and wine was one of the most memorable events of our adventures in Argentina.
