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 pop-ups in Buenos Aires.
May is going by fast and everyone on the street has a nasty cold (including me). Still, there are a lot of foodie options this week, from natural food workshops to a candy fest. So leave that snuggie on the bed, put on a jacket and get munching!
Did you know? After the Industrial Revolution, bread production became automatized; bread itself lost its nutritional value and became harder to digest. Luckily, there are still people making the original with just water, flour, salt, sourdough and patience. This workshop takes us way back and teaches us how to get the good stuff. The cost is $500 per person and you can get your place by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 1131664250.

Gluten Free Workshop
