The empanada, a pastry pocket stuffed with a filling, is a variation of one of the most universal dishes in the world. Every culture has its own version, whether it is called a dumpling, a fatay, a samosa or a pierogi. The Spaniards adopted the concept of empanadas from the Moors and were the first to bring them to South America. In Argentina, the various combinations of ingredients have been improved and refined for centuries. Today's Argentine empanadas are not only a staple food but a gourmet treat. With a wide variety of flavors and textures, our empanadas are made with fresh seasonal ingredients that reflect nature's wisdom. We make our empanadas by hand, one by one, just like our own grandmothers made them. As a result, we don't just feed peopleâ€”we nourish them.
