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.

We enjoyed the cooking a lot. Pilar was fantastic and taught us passionately about empanadas. And the food itself was easily prepared and super delicious.

Pilar is a charming host and terrific empanada-making teacher. She was very patient, moved slowly enough for everyone in our group, and answered all our questions along the way. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow and she told us really interesting stories about how empanadas came to be in South America, and the significance of the different shapes. The experience was a lot of fun and we look forward to doing another class with Pilar.
