EMPANADAS : Golden Pockets of Deliciousness

TUE | MAY 2 | 6:30PM - 8:30PM
(2 Hours)

Empanadas are delicious stuffed pockets of flavorful goodness.  They are a fun and easy food to prepare, all you need is a handful of ingredients that one typically has in their pantry to prepare.  They can be filled with a variety of meats, vegetables & cheeses, and are customarily served with a spicy, zesty, herbaceous or creamy dipping sauce.

In this hands on class students will all make their own dough, as well as a variety of fillings and dipping sauces to pair.  We will cover folding techniques, flavor combinations portion control and finishing techniques.  Each students will make about 2 dozen empanadas to eat and to take home to share with friends or family, or to just grub on for lunch.

We will gather at the end of class and sit down to enjoy our creations with a prepared salad and refreshments.
