• Savory empanadas: picadillo beef (Cuba), cheese (Venezuela), GF black beens and cheese (Venezuela)
• Sweet empanadas: cream cheese and guava (Puerto Rico and/or Cuba)
• Shaved cauliflower salad or quinoa tabuli salad
• Iced water
In this fun, hands-on class, I will introduce you to some authentic ingredients and flavors from the Caribbean. I will share helpful techniques on how to make empanada dough as well as flavorful fillings. You will also be guided on how to shape and cook the empanadas. We will also use store bought dough for savory empanadas (Goya discs) and sweet empanadas (Pepperidge Farm’s puff pastry).
Take this opportunity to learn a new skill, and make some new friends along the way!
