Join us for this fun and hands-on cooking class in Manhattan where you’ll learn to make one of the most popular Mexican street foods: empanadas!

We'll start by making the corn dough from scratch, which is the essential piece to bringing this recipe to life. You will have three recipe options to choose from: cheese, veggie, and ground beef empanadas. Your instructor will teach you how to make your choice filling. Once the dough pockets are filled, they will be fried to crispy perfection. From the sauces to the garnishes, you'll enjoy a little taste of Mexico in NYC.

No experience is required for this beginner cooking class! 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 (or taste testing).

If you're looking for fun team building activities or date night ideas in NYC, try a cooking class for a change of pace. Learn how to make delicious homemade empanadas and take home the skills to be able to recreate them again on your own!
