Master Classes

With an award winning wine list that boasts being the largest Argentine listing outside the country itself, it's clear from the outset that we're particularly passionate about our wines.

Given the slightest opportunity we're eager to enthuse with anyone that's interested in learning more about this wonderful world of wine. With this in mind we've compiled a comprehensive series of tasting packages available for those that want to entertain, educate or simply indulge.

These packages serve as a guide to what we can offer but we are happy to provide you with a bespoke experience should you desire something different.

Packages are priced as standard for parties up to 14 persons.

COCKTAIL MASTER CLASS 
£45
per person
(Minimum of 6 guests)

An exciting, interactive group experience that incorporates five classic cocktails with a twist. You will take a journey through the surprising, colourful history of each drink whilst you make it, and learn why to muddle or shake versus stir. You will learn why particular spirits blend better with certain fruits and flavours, and afterwards you can amaze your friends with your prowess as well as a little cocktail trivia.

Paired up, you will make your drinks as the master class leader talks you through each one, with a ‘taste off’ competition for the best drink of every round. This will culminate with the two highest-scoring teams taking part in a final ‘shake off’ with a surprise drink and, of course, a prize for the winners.

At the end of the event guests can enjoy a cocktail and canapé reception in the bar.
BEEF MASTER CLASS
Our pampas-reared, Argentine beef is representative of our overall passion for the finest ingredients and the best methods. We love sharing our knowledge with our guests in the hope that everyone will become as enamoured with Argentine cuisine and culture as we are.

Gaucho is delighted to offer a complimentary beef masterclass with the Head Chef for all group bookings of 9 or more guests. We will incorporate a 30-minute table-side class into your meal which will give you an introduction to Argentine beef and enable you to understand how it is matured, prepared and cooked.
CEVICHE MASTER CLASS
Ceviche is a mouth-watering, traditional South American delicacy, made by marinating raw seafood in citrus juices.

Tutored by our Head Chef, we are pleased to offer a 45-minute Ceviche masterclass where we show you how they are made and then help you to recreate them. You will get a unique insight into our De Mar, Scallops and Ecuadorian Ceviche which will enable you to truly appreciate this popular culinary treat.

Please check with the restaurant for the next class time and the current price.
