Wat je gaat doen

Learn the art and craft of making (and eating) multi-generational family recipes.

Mirta’s zest for life and passion for her country will immediately impress you as she welcomes you to her art-filled home. She will greet you with a hot cup of mate, the traditional herbal tea of Argentina, along with an assortment of snacks, which may include toasted Argentinian bread, artisanal cheeses and charcuterie from her local Argentinian butcher, and her homemade dulce de membrillo (quince paste and jelly).

Mirta will then lead you through the mate ceremony, which will incorporate her gorgeous collection of handmade mate cups and utensils. Then, you will follow Mirta into the kitchen where the lesson will begin. Mirta will teach you how to make some of her favorite family recipes, including hongos con provolone (pan-seared portobellos marinated in chimichurri sauce and topped with melted provolone cheese), humitas (a sweet and savory corn pudding made with fresh corn shaved from the cob, onion, pepper, tomato, and fresh basil), and alfajores (delicate butter cookies flavored with vanilla and lemon, filled with caramel-like dulce de leche, and rolled in shredded coconut).

Once all of the food has been prepared, you will dine on the mouth-watering fruits of your labor. You’ll go home with a packet that includes information about Argentinian cuisine, a shopping guide to Mirta’s favorite markets, and your very own copy of Mirta’s family recipes.

I'm the founder of the League of Kitchens, a culinary dream-team of women who welcome you into their homes, teach family recipes, and inspire you with personal stories.

Mirta is your host for this experience. Born in the mountainous region of Mendoza, Argentina, known for its wines and landscapes, she grew up learning from her grandmother, who cooked for a family-owned hotel.

Mirta moved to the US in 1975, and after a colorful career of planning events for world leaders, politicians, musicians, and actors, she developed her own line of artisanal membrillo and Argentinian sweets, which she now makes and distributes to restaurants and shops in the tri-state area. Mirta’s adventurous spirit is reflected in her creative and playful approach to cooking, which has been captured by Oprah Magazine, The New York Times, CBS New York, and others.

This workshop will take place in Mirta’s cozy apartment in Forest Hills. Mirta’s love of art is apparent in her collection of original artwork and unique Argentinian crafts. After the workshop, we recommend exploring the culturally diverse neighborhood of Forest Hills. Home to the second largest Bukharian Jewish community in the world, make sure to check out the shops on 108th street (between 63rd and 65th Ave) to get a taste of their culture.

I had the BEST time at this class! Mirta (our host/instructor) was so warm and welcoming, and the food was amazing! She had many personal Argentinian pieces that she discussed with us, and we not only learned about her culture but also her family. She introduced us to an amazing set of snacks and taught us how to drink mate like a pro. I learned a lot, yet it felt like visiting a relative! The cooking itself was great. She was happy to answer questions and made sure the experience was hands-on. I left feeling like I understood why we were doing certain things, and that I could replicate these dishes myself (which I absolutely will)! It was really a pleasure spending time with Mirta, and I'm so glad I was able to learn with her! I cannot recommend this experience enough.

What can I say!?! This experience was one of my favorites EVER. I have been on LOTS of Airbnb Experiences, this one was my favorite - hands down. Lisa sets up the experiences, but my host was Mirta, from Mendoza, Argentina. Mirta is an Argentinian woman who loves her country, her culture, and sharing it with others. I was the only one booked on the experience so I feel like I got an extra special encounter, because I didn't have to share Mirta with anyone. I learned so much about Argentina and I ate so much delicious food. When I arrived I learned about Mate and Mirta showed me how to drink it like a pro. Then we feasted on a charcuterie spread fit for royalty. Mirta and I worked on a full meal that literally had my tastebuds jumping for joy. How often does one get invited into someone's home and welcomed to make a traditional and DELICIOUS meal with someone with so much life experience? Not often I tell ya! I love Mirta, I felt like I was cooking with my mom, that's how much love she puts into her food and the the people around her. I left her place and immediately looked up tickets to Mendoza. Thank you Mirta for such an authentic, passion filled, immersive experience. I'll be back with my parents and my siblings.
