Sunday, February 11, 2pm: Empanada Making with Jezabel Careaga of Jezabel’s

Price $85.00

Seats Remaining:SOLD OUT

Looking to up your Hot Pocket game? Meet the empanada, the stuffed pastry baked or fried that you can find throughout Latin America. Empanadas, while they may be found by different names in such far-flung places as India and the Philippines, are most closely associated with Argentina. Lucky for you, there’s a little slice of Argentina in Philadelphia’s Fitler Square neighborhood – Jezabel’s, operated by Argentine expat Jezabel Careaga. At Jezabel’s, Careaga strives to deliver the tastes of Argentina from her childhood, while fusing global tastes and flavors in uniquely delicious ways. Inspired by the bakers in her family— her grandmother Julia, mother Aurelia, and aunt Sara – her pastries are an evolution of recipes she prepared as a child. Jezabel will lead guests in a hands-on empanada lesson, preparing empanadas de carne, empanadas de humita (spicy corn), and for dessert, empanadas de membrillo (quince paste) y queso de cabra (hard goat cheese), accompanied by a selection of tea blends served at Jezabel’s Studio, Jezabel’s West Philadelphia boutique/cafe/workshop. Guests will take home their own empanada creations, just so you don’t have to reach for that Hot Pocket next time you’re craving a snack.
