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.
Other things to note
As soon as you reserve we will send you an explaining video and the list of the ingredients that you should have, if you are vegan we can design the experience with ingredients suitable for you.

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.

The empanada making class was so wonderfuly paced and extremely easy to follow. The up close shots on the processes and the thorough explanation of each step made me an empanada maker! I also loved the ingredient list sent as soon as I signed up along with a step by step YouTube video about how to prepare the fillings for our lesson in advance; then I got a reminder email to make sure everything was ready to go before class. I had a great afternoon learning a new skill. We also made 5 different empanadas. I highly recommend this activity and I enjoyed knowing that 3 women taking the class were all friends enjoying an activity separate but together. Bravo

This was super fun. I had made empanadas years ago but had no idea there were different shapes. The instruction was clear and paced well. I’m eating the humitas one right now and it is delicious! There is only one way I could think to make this better.... to have the class in Argentina. Next time ;)

Fantastic lads to take. Very easy to follow and the empanadas come out just like there supposed to. I’m so happy I finally learned how to make empanadas. These 2 make it so easy to follow and understand. Time flew by and before we knew it we were eating our own empanadas Yummy
