the workshops

We teach the value of a balanced diet through children’s cooking classes, which provide practical and fun learning with low-cost and easy recipes.

catering service

We offer breakfasts, lunches, coffee breaks and dinners for businesses and individuals, to make your events more sustainable and healthy.

what do we do

Since 2015, we have been working to give children the opportunity to learn the value of a balanced diet, offering them free cooking and nutrition workshops in impoverished neighbourhoods. 

 

Our work is self-financed by the profits of our restaurant and catering service, which offers natural food with a sustainable service. 

 

100% of the profits of our service go towards the continuation of the workshops.

natural

The food is homemade and vegetarian, with organic, local and in season ingredients. 

healthy

We always use as little sugar, flour and salt as possible, and never super-processed food. 

sustainable

We reinvest profits to provide education about nutrition to the children who need it most. 

Malnutrition, whether it be the result of care and excess, impacts massively on personal development, causes high levels of absenteeism in school, decreased intellectual performance and grave health consequences such as anaemia and untransmissible chronic illness. 

Approximately 150 children from impoverished neighbourhoods have have attended the cooking and nutrition workshops run by English chef Alicia Amende since they began in 2014. 

To celebrate a party, she bought fizzy drinks, biscuits and made fried cakes. It made me think I had to do something. During the next celebration, I brought fresh ingredients and began to prepare them with the children. 

 

the workshops

We host free cooking and nutrition workshops for children between 8 and 12. We run the workshops in kitchens and cultural centres, and up to today we have been able to reach 470 children in 12 different neighbourhoods in Buenos Aires and Gualeguay.

Our aim is to help children and communities make the best decision surrounding a balanced and healthy diet. The workshops are practical and with groups of up to 40 children, who complete a course of 6 classes that are each 2 hours long. We cook with easily accessible, in season and low-cost ingredients and make recipes that are well-known but in a healthier way. 

As well as cooking, the children complete a little “Delicias de Alicia” book, which gives them more technical information about nutrition; how to treat water and good hygiene practices in the kitchen.

 

the restaurant

We open our doors once a month for a night of unique vegetarian food, live music and all for the purpose of supporting our cause. The ticket includes a four-course dinner, all made  with organic and in season ingredients, sevred in our 19th century house. 

I love to learn about projects like Delicias de Alicia. They give free nutrition and cooking workshops to children in impoverished neighbourhoods. To finance these workshops, they prepare food in a grand house in San Telmo. It is truly like a movie set. Eating in a beautiful setting, with homemade and healthy food, sharing a beautiful moment with strangers and ON TOP OF THAT 100% of the earnings go towards this great cause. It’s unmissable. Standing applause and ovation!
