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 flavorful empanada fillings. You will also be guided on how to shape and cook the empanadas. We will use store bought dough for savory empanadas (Goya discs) and sweet empanadas (pastry dough).
