Thursday, September 1st | 6:30pm-8:00pm | Learn to Make Empanadas


Most cultures have their own version of a dish that features meat or cheese wrapped in dough; whether it’s pierogi, dumplings, or ravioli. Latin America’s answer is the empanada! In this class, you will learn how to make both meat and sweet empanadas as well as your own dough. Students will have a hands-on learning experience and leave with all the recipes created in class.

Please note: Participants will have the option to eat during this class. If you would prefer to eat at home, please bring a to-go container with you. Students will be standing during this class, however a limited number of stools will be available. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available upon request prior to class, though the kitchen is not an allergen-free environment.

This class is appropriate for ages 18+.

This class will take place at Eat Me Ice Cream located inside The Hungerford Building at 1115 East Main St. Suite 148. Please enter through Door 1.

Live subtitles will be available upon request during this class. If you would like to request a sign language interpreter or will be attending class with an aide, please fill out our contact form. Please also let us know if you have any preferences (seating, vision access, etc).
