South America is a continent with a serious sweet tooth — and, luckily, desserts to sate it.

In this hands-on class with Chef Gustavo, you will learn how to prepare an assortment of South America's most delectable offerings that are perfect for your first foray into the world of South American pastries.

You will begin in Argentina as Chef Gustavo teaches you how to make a lusciously smooth homemade dulce de leche in the traditional Argentine way. Then, you will use your milky marmalade concoction to fill up homemade cinnamon sugar-spiked Spanish churros, and soft, heavenly cookies sandwiched with dulce de leche.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Gustavo is a very experienced chef who didn’t mind to share his secrets. Food was awesome and we all took samples and left overs home. He is very humble and personal, made it easy to ask any question. Will look out for his classes and book again.
