Fancy enjoying the sweet flavours of Latin America without leaving your home? Make this delicious biscuit sandwich filled with Dulce de Leche and coated with chocolate.

This sweet treat is so popular in Argentina, you’ll see people unwrapping them on the subway, enjoying them with coffee at the cafés or eating different versions at high-end local restaurants. They are a perfect thing to make at home for dessert, a birthday party, or just because you love them!

During this online baking class, we will make the cookie dough from scratch. Your talented teacher will share useful tips on freezing, preserving, thawing and baking this type of dough.

You will then learn to make the alfajor using dulce de leche —our most typical spread to use in Argentina — and talk about some substitutes and different fillings that you could use in the Alfajores making.

We will finish this marble by coating it with chocolate and showing you how we wrap them for a present! Alfajores are wonderful handmade gifts for loved ones as everyone will enjoy them.

See you at the class!

We loved our class with Chef Manu. He was very knowledgeable and great at talking us through each step. He would explain why it needed to be a certain way which was really helpful and informative! We are trying to save some of the Alfajores for 48 hours but they are so tasty it has been hard!

Chef Manu was brilliant! We both really enjoyed learning how to make this traditional Argentinian street food. Chef Manu was really friendly and helpful, ensuring we did everything correctly and sharing nuggets of information about alfajores. Thank you Chef Manu - we can't wait to eat them (but will try our best to wait 48 hours for most of them!). Best wishes.
