For $10,000 or so, a trip to Argentina with Nancy Silverton and Suzanne Tracht

Argentina (1)

An 11-day, first-class, food-themed tour of four cities in Argentina with Nancy Silverton and Suzanne Tracht? The chefs of Mozza and Jar, respectively, will be taking part in Argentina 444's September tour of Buenos Aires, Mendoza, Bariloche and El Calafate. 

You'll be chauffeured to and from airports, led on excursions to organic markets, allowed access to top kitchens, fed seven-course dinners, traipsed through vineyards. You'll be eating empanadas at the foot of the Andes, and grilling lamb at an Argentine estancia. An expedition to Cerro Otto ends with cheeses, smoked hams, pates and fondue -- yes, fondue -- on a terrace facing the lakes. Later on the same evening, you'll be served exclusive wines of the Patagonian Valley.  

If this sounds like your kind of trip and you have about $10K to spare, sign up by July 16, when the price of the travel package is $9,500. After that, the price goes back up to $11,500. There are only 16 spots for the trip. (Note: September may be our summer, but it's winter in Argentina.) Other chefs scheduled to take part in subsequent tours include Chris Cosentino of Incanto and Boccalone in the Bay Area and John Sundstrom of Lark in Seattle.

Kind of expensive since Argentina is a seriously cheap (but absolutely great) place to visit.
