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 pollo (filled with roasted chicken and adobo) and empanadas de cebolla y queso (filled with sauteed leeks, onions and cheese), and for dessert, empanadas de pera con pastelera y dulce de leche (filled with pear and egg custard and served with dulce de leche sauce), 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.
