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.

An incredibly fun event to do with your friends, family, or as a work function! The empanadas came out looking amazing and tasting even better. We even got to learn a bit about different styles of empanadas that I didn't even know existed.

We had a great time making empanadas with Alejandro and Pilar! They were so easy, super tasty, and definitely something we'll keep making at home. Our virtual experience was seamless - we joined via Zoom from two different households. Highly recommend!

This was so great! I'm not just saying that because I'm apparently the best at making empanadas, but I couldn't have become the best empanada maker (in my household) without the help of Pilar and Co.! Very informative, fun and delicious!

This was a Christmas gift for my parents. I wanted an activity they could do together from home. This experience was amazing. They loved it and had so much fun learning about empanadas. They loved it so much they came over and made my husband and I empanadas for dinner this week. My parents had such a great time and I have told many friends about this. Everyone should try! Thank you so much for making my parents night!

This was super fun! Easy to prep and follow along live. Pilar walked through the steps clearly and waited to make sure everyone was ready before moving on when making the dough and each empanada shape. They also had a zoomed in video to the side so you could see all of the detail. Pilar also talked more about the history of empanadas which was interesting. Overall a great experience and was delicious!
