What you'll do

Did you think that preparing empanadas was only for people who are experts in cooking?

"ANYONE CAN COOK ARGENTINE EMPANADAS WITH US" -
THIS IS 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!

In only 2 hours 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.

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.

"Empanadas are for everyone and no matter the age or level of culinary knowledge, we can all learn."

You dare?

My husband and I have had many food businesses, but if there is something that has captivated the attention of our diners, it is the empanadas.

Even, when we met this was one of the first delicacies that Alejandro prepared for me and the first recipe that he taught me to cook, that's how I fell in love with him. He also cooked empanadas when he met my mom (his mother-in-law) and of course he also wowed her.

Alejandro studied 6 years as an international chef, however, he learned to make empanadas at home, they are something familiar that he learned when he was a child with his grandmother, simple typical recipes from Tafí del Valle and Tafí Viejo (towns in the north of Argentina)

We have already completed 1 year online teaching through Airbnb where more than 1,500 people have learned this art.

This was our first Airbnb online experience and what a treat it was! Pilar is a great host and took care to guide us step by step. The Empanadas we cooked turned out to he delicious and is the best 2 hours we spent on an online activity in recent time.

Great outcome, we each made a batch of 10 so have plenty! 7 different styles of empanadas were great to learn…Pilar was very expert at making them and teaching the folds and dough. Very worthwhile!

Pilar was a great host who explained the process very well and was so patient with our large private group. The setup video was a great help before the cooking class. It was a great experience!

This was a great experience! I bought it for my partner as a Christmas gift, and we had a lot of fun. We were the only people in the class, so we got a personalized experience! It was a great value too. The empanadas were excellent, and we look forward to making them again. We also learned a lot about the history and culture of the food.

It was very interesting learning to make all the different kinds of empanadas. I tasted only one yet, the others have to wait for later, but I’m sure they will be all delicious
