The who’s who of the travel industry gathered at Vive Cooking School in Sydney and the Prahan Hotel in Melbourne last week, for two exclusive South American cooking classes hosted by LATAM Airlines Group (‘LATAM’).
At the Sydney event, guests swapped their travel hats for chef hats and joined Brazilian chef Julian Vasseur and guest chef Bruno Da Motta on a culinary journey to Latin America, whilst those in Melbourne whipped up gastronomic delights under the instructions of chef Danny Parreno. Guests learnt how to cook a variety of traditional dishes including empanadas and ceviche. The classes ended on a sweet note with fresh picarones (a Peruvian dessert, similar to doughnuts).

Commencing 5 October 2017, the Melbourne-Santiago service will be the first ever non-stop service between the two cities.
