Event Overview

Welcome to our cozy kitchen!
We’ll be making a delicious dinner together. Everyone roll up your sleeves!
We’ll spend the first part of class cooking and the last 30 minutes enjoying a family style dinner. 
We’ll be creating a special menu from Argentina!

We made these recipes with a group of families this winter and they were a hit and encouraged kids to try new foods, too!

- we’ll make the empanada dough and the filling, roll out dough, cut out circles and fill and shape the empanadas before baking them.

Papas con Chimichurri - roasted potatoes with a herb/ garlic sauce
- we will cut the potatoes, work with fresh herbs and garlic to create a sauce and dress the roasted potatoes for serving.

Argentine Salad with Hearts of Palm and Cilantro Vinaigrette
- we will make a fresh tossed salad and learn the basics of making a classic vinaigrette with a twist.

Alfajores - sugar cookies sandwiched together with dulce de leche
