Feria MASTICAR: Discover Top Argentinean Chefs at an Affordable Price

Feria MASTICAR - Buenos Aires Food FairFeria MASTICAR (oct 16- oct 19) is an initiative by a group of Argentinean chefs, ACELGA (a rather un-translatable play on a vegetable name). The group gathers famous chefs – some of them appear on TV- in an effort to promote a new generation of cooks, more relaxed and close to the public than their older peers.

For this 3rd edition, over 40 food vendors will be at Feria MASTICAR, from high-end restaurants to chocolate makers. The fair is organized around 4 activities:

-       Food vendors: a great way to taste some of the most famous chefs’ signature dishes at an affordable price

-       Food market: a direct contact with food producers from all over the country: cheeses, meats, fruits, honey, etc.

-       Wine and beer tunnels: experience a wine or beer tasting. The wine tasting is directed by professional sommeliers from CAVE Association (Centro Argentino de Vinos y Espumantes).

-       Wine Bar: a large wine bar with a wide selection of wines by the glass.


There will also be talks and lessons by important chefs: Donato De Santis, Dolli Irigoyen, Narda Lepes, Beatriz Chomnalez, Matías Kyriazis, Pablo Massey, just to name some of them.
