Discovering Argentinean Empanadas' History

The name “empanada” comes from the Spanish “empanar“, which means “to bread” or, in the case of the empanada, “to wrap something in bread”. Since their arrival in Argentina some centuries ago, empanadas have become an icon staple in the entire country. ...

The first empanadas were made in the Iberian peninsula, specifically Portugal and Galicia (the north-westernmost region of Spain), during the Medieval period and at the time of the Moorish invasion. Recipes for empanadas have been found from as early the start of the 16th century.

Empanadas can be either baked or fried. We baked them by default to offer healthier food but you can order fried empanadas any time.
