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.

We loved this experience! The hosts were so kind and friendly, and enjoyable to spend a couple of hours with. I honestly felt just as engaged over the video call as I have at my in person experiences! They were very clear in their instructions and the food was amazing 🤩

Pilar and Alejandro are so fun and so encouraging, and will have you making delicious empanadas in no time. I'm honestly amazed at the ones I made, and have the confidence to try a few on my own now without Alejandro's guidance. This class is super informative, with personalized feedback for all, and yet laid back. Definitely grab yourself a bottle of Malbec to enjoy with the empanadas after!

This was a fun zoom experience for our whole family. We had three families, with adults and children, the youngest was 10, and we all participated in making the empanadas. Pilar and Alejandro are very friendly and helpful. They are comfortable being interrupted with a question or repeating a process if needed. If your family likes to cook I highly recommend this lesson.

Alejandro and Pilar were amazing hosts for our family! We did a private group as a way to gather over thanksgiving with family. The hosts were personable they watched our progress and encouraged our efforts or had helpful suggestions. It was a busy 2 hours and we had tasty empanadas at the end! Our group ages were 10-70 and everyone seemed to enjoy it and jump in. They teach you multiple folding techniques. There is a bit of prep to get the fillings ready but you could also learn the folding with fewer fillings if you didn’t have the time. We over made fillings but I’m enjoying having leftovers it’s what thanksgiving is best known for anyway! At the end, Pilar arranged for our family to stay in the Zoom room privately. It was great to chat over the empanadas we made.
