Monday, November 13th | 6:30PM-8:30PM | 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.
