The Argentine Barbeque School is the first of its kind and unique in its teaching techniques. The courses and classes are given in a real environment, in front of an authentic, traditional Argentine barbeque; the same barbeque that has been amazing customers for over 40 years. Therefore, we do not only teach how to barbeque meat, but also, cooking in general. We go over the 3 main pillars of cooking. Firstly, fire and its temperature and the art of dominating them, the 3 fire dimensions: height, level and distance, so as to not saturate or boil certain products. Secondly, the raw material, how it was produced and where each product, whether animal or vegetable, comes from. Thirdly, but not less important, the condiments needed for each cut to have balance and harmony.
During the courses we will provide recipes, techniques and secrets. We will also provide 2 different ways of barbequing meat: the first, for entrepreneurs who are thinking of opening their own business with costs and yield information; the second, for cooking a barbeque among friends. The techniques are very different but equally important!
Each class is 3 hours long. This will allow the student to participate in a direct and personalized way, both theoretically and in front of barbeque, with the meat in hand. In every class the student will receive study notes in colour, on-going until their folder is complete, utensils, aprons, products (meat, vegetables, etc.) for practical classes. The end-product will be tasted after every class and the student may have 1 beverage (water or coffee). Filming and taking photographs is permitted when the chef approves.
The student must have life insurance.
The student may sign-up for an optional course during the 12-day course. This course will allow the student to be present at the restaurant to view the service during the 3-hour afternoon shift and 3-hour night shift, a total of 6 hours. This will add more knowledge to everything that has been learnt during the course.
