Learn How To No-bake Argentina’s National ‘Cake’: Chocotorta
In this thirty minutes interactive online cooking tour we will teach you how to turn three basic ingredients into the easiest yet most delicious cake ever.
- Virtual Experience
Ask any Argentine around what they think is the most typical Argentine dessert and you are almost guaranteed to learn about the Chocotorta.
Translated as chocolate cake, this Argentine phenomenon is made with three Argentinian staple ingredients: chocolate biscuits, dulce de leche (local delicacy), and cream cheese.
Although no Argentine birthday celebration is complete without a chocotorta, this is a dish that is rarely found in restaurants, which means the only way to try it is to make it yourself.
Join our local expert in this interactive culinary adventure and learn how to make the recently named best dessert in the world.

Do I need a special app or software to take part?
All our online tours are held over Zoom.
If you are joining from a computer, you do not need to install Zoom to join meetings. This can be done via the Web browser if you have a link to any Zoom meeting (which we will provide via email after your purchase). When it is time, click on the invitation link and be sure to ignore the prompt to install the Zoom app. Once you ignore this, you will be able to join the meeting via a browser.
On the other hand, you will need to install Zoom on your device before you can join a Zoom meeting if you are using your smartphone to take part.
You will not be required to create a Zoom account, as having one is not needed if you are strictly joining Zoom Meetings as a participant.
Can I invite friends and or family to experience the session with me?
Yes, you can! And we highly recommend it. There is nothing better than sharing our online tours with those you love the most.
You can gather friends or family around the same device if you would like to, or they can join from their own device if they are not at the same physical location as you are. In the second case, they will have to purchase their own tickets, and specify they want to share the session with you (providing your name and surname so that we can match all of you together).
Can I ask questions and talk to the guide?
The reason behind the video and audio being two ways is for you to be able to interact as much as you want with your fellow participants and the tour guide. So do not be shy and ask all the questions you want!
Is there any age limit to join the online tour?
Only for those experiences featuring alcoholic beverages. In that case, the age limit is 18 or 21, depending on the customer’s home country’s regulations.
What is your cancelation policy?
Customers are allowed to cancel the session and get 100% of their money refunded or reschedule up to 24 hours prior their tour takes place. After that deadline the company does not offer rescheduling or refunding.
Under certain circumstances, and to protect our staff’s health, outdoor experiences may be cancelled. If the cancellation takes place 24 hours or more before the starting time, the company only offers customers to reschedule. On the other hand, if it happens within 24 hrs before the starting time, we offer customers both the possibility to have 100% of their money back or rescheduling, whatever option suits them most.
