This Saturday, September 26, 2020, is National Family Day. I know… we’ve been spending a whole lot of time lately with our families, so another day to celebrate with the family is just… another day in this time of pandemic quarantining, right? Spice it up a bit to make National Family Day an intentional family day by disconnecting from the distractions (phones, social media, virtual school, working from home) to spend some quality time with the fam.

Take advantage of the nice weather this weekend and head to the backyard for an Argentinian Asado (barbecue), Buenos Aires Café style! The local Austin restaurant is offering a DIY BBQ food kit for a day of fun at home.

When cooking an ‘asado’ or barbecue in their native Argentina, co-owners and mother/daughter duo Chef Reina Morris and Paola Guererro-Smith make it a fun affair, lasting most of the day and involving all members of the family. Their Familia Dinner package serves 4-6 people and is a unique and engaging all-inclusive experience for the whole household. Gather your family on this special day as the pros guide you through the cooking & grilling process step by step with a video from the Master of Grill herself, co-owner Paola Guerrero-Smith.

Order a Familia Dinner, $125 per ticket (+ tax and fees), which includes:

  • Recorded Video with Master of Grill Paola Guerrero-Smith
  • SAUSAGES: salchicha parrillera, morcilla x 2, house-made bratwurst x 2
