Moveable Feasts is a weekly agenda in which our food writer Tamx Rivas gives us the low-down on this week’s food fairs, workshops, and things to eat in Buenos Aires. 

April is here and autumn is already making us crazy with its weird climate changes. But the hunger never ceases and we’re up to the challenge of finding the best foods in town. Eager to try something new? These are our picks of the week!

Espacio Hanami: Asian Deli Market

Are you into Japanese food? Who isn’t, right? This weekend, Espacio Hanami is putting on a Japanese food and goods event down in Palermo. You’ll be able to find the classics (sushi, matcha-related-food, pastries) and discover new and exciting flavors from the other side of the globe (no, I’m not a flat-earther). There will even be a series of workshops (i.e. origami) and talks you can take part in. This event wasn’t organized by a 30-year-old-reddit-weaboo-who-lives-in-his-mother’s-basement group. It’s run by a group of Japanese guys, so you know it’ll be legit.

Have you ever tried dehydrating your food? Me neither.

The course consists of two intensive classes, on the 11th and 12th April.
