What you'll do

"ANYONE CAN COOK ARGENTINE EMPANADAS WITH US" -
GREAT FOR GROUPS

Empanadas are EASY, for every taste, cheap ingredients and absurdly delicious. One of the most popular dishes in Argentina, you find them on the streets or in any fancy restaurant, a perfect recipe for this time of austerity.

WE WILL MAKE SURE YOU REALLY LEARN AND WE WILL GIVE YOU ALL OUR KNOWLEDGE!

Since in Argentina there are around 20 types of empanadas, This time we will teach you to make 5 salty empanadas and 1 sweet. You will get a video to learn to make the fillings. During the experience we will teach you how to make the dough, knead and make the shape for each empanada (each flavor has a different shape). Then we will show you the different fillings and combinations and assemble the empanadas to leave them ready to cook. With our dough you can bake or fry.

Alejandro will tell you the stories of how he learned to make empanadas at home with his grandmother, this is quite a tradition in Argentina.

To finish and no less important, we are going to teach you how to make the popular chimichurri, this is the sauce to eat your empanadas.

We love to see families and friends cooking together. This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

My husband and I love to cook, he is an Argentine professional chef and I am his Colombian assistant, we have an argentinian restaurant in Medellín.

From a young age Alejandro (my husband) gained experience in Argentine gastronomy in areas of bakery, pastry and all kinds of typical food focusing specifically on meats and sausages. He studied at a gastronomy school for an international chef for 3 years and 3 years as a gastronomic technician. He has a long history working for different national and international restaurants. About 25 years cooking and we been teaching people to cook for 2 years and also offering Airbnb experiences.

Although Alejandro is a professional chef, he learned this recipe from his grandmother and has a genuine appreciation for empanadas.

We are very patient and we will explain everything to you.

My family did this as a private experience to celebrate a big Birthday in the family. Because of Covid and everyone being all spread out these experiences are the way to go. It was a way to bring us all together for more than just a zoom call. We surprised the Birthday girl by not telling her the family would be participating. It was such a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Pilar and Alejandro are so personable, Super patient and know how to keep things moving while we were all learning. The empanadas were super tasty and everyone had a great time. I def recommend having all your Ingredients laid out and prepped before starting. Thanks Pilar and Alejandro for making this a great Birthday Celebration.

Thank you so much. My 9 y/o son, my mother and I really loved this experience. My son said he really enjoyed his time with both of you and he loved feeling like we traveled outside of the country without getting on a plane. You made the experience incredibly unique and he's already asked to to make another batch of empanadas . Muchisimas gracias!

We did this virtual experience as an outing for our Spanish club. It was so much fun to cook with my students and gave us an opportunity to do something fun and educational during this time that we haven't been able to do in-person outings. The recipes were easy to follow along with and there was enough time to work on the dough and make our empanadas. It was really interesting to listen to some of Pilar and Alejandro's stories, as well as learn a lot of great historical information about Argentina.
