Auzmendi (L) and Molteni (R).

Join Young Professionals of the Americas in collaboration with the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Worship, and the Embassy of Argentina in Washington, DC, for our fourth YPA Gastrodiplomacy Series live from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Martín Molteni, one of Argentina’s pioneer chefs and founder of Proyecto PURATIERRA, and Martín Auzmendi, co-creator of La Fuerza Vermouth, invite you to cook together and share your creation in a guided class. Discover new flavors in South American cooking and learn about the first Vermouth of the Andes mountains. Together, the food and wine experts will give you an inside view into how porteños enjoy the most authentic cocina de barrio. On the menu: steak with chimichurri, scrambled gramajo, roasted butternut squash, and apples with honey and lemon.

Argentina is a country that is as wide in territory as in cultural diversity. Today’s gastronomy revitalizes its history and renews its character while maintaining an identity of its own. Argentina is home to young chefs creating a new cuisine that is open to the world, yet rooted in its land. 

See the list of ingredients. Order Argentine beef and vermouth.

Webex participation for direct engagement with the chefs is open to YPA Members only. The cooking class will also be livestreamed at 6 p.m. ET on the day of the event.
