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 West Philly – 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 happy hour, preparing empanadas de carne (tradicional NW Argentine spicy beef with raisins) and empanadas de verduras (roasted seasonal veggies with bechamel and parmesan), served with roasted veggies and romesco. Bonus: a dessert of torta de almendras with yogurt mousse and raspberries. 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.
