Join us for an evening of Argentinian cuisine, where you will learn to make the flaky meets juicy pastry pocket we all know and love: The Empanada. In this cooking class in LA, you'll learn how to make an authentic empanada recipe from scratch.
These flavorful patties made of dough are traditionally filled with meat, seafood, cheese, vegetables or fruit, and have a variety of adaptions based on the country you enjoy them. It is, however, believed that early Spanish immigrants carried the recipe to Argentina during the 16th century, and in this class, you will have the pleasure of learning directly from an Argentine Chef what makes this dish unique in his beloved country.
In this fun and hands-on class, your chef will guide you step by step in preparing your own Empanadas from scratch with authentic Argentine-style fillings. You will learn to make the dough to then fill with Chef's recipe featuring ground beef and spices, as well as a savory Mushroom, Kale and Smashed Potato filling. Next, the Chef will demonstrate how to fill your empanada disks before folding and sealing the edges off to be baked to flaky, golden perfection.
The best part of the class will be sitting down to enjoy your delicious made-from-scratch meal, with new-found skills to remake this special dish and share it with friends and family back home!
No experience is required! We provide all the equipment and ingredients, which are easy to find at local markets if you don’t already have them in your home kitchen. Our events are casual and meant to be fun and instructive, not hardcore. This class is designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step as it is for the first-timer who’s happier observing and assisting.
If you're looking for fun birthday party ideas, date ideas or team building workshops, throw an empanada party! This hands-on cooking class will bring positive and creative energy to your evening, perfect for any occasion.
