Empanadas de carne are undoubtedly the dish that I most relate to my grandmother Kika. She inspired the creation of this website and was my main cooking inspiration.
At Christmas time, I remember her in the kitchen preparing hundreds of empanadas to share with the whole family. Although she also prepared them at other times of the year, these empanadas ended up being for us the symbol of Christmas.
Obviously, for me it has been important to learn this recipe. I keep it as one of my biggest trophies, because when I prepare it, I can feel my grandma near to me. As she did in her whole life, I also love to share it with my loves ones.
This simple dish represent the traditions in several of our Latin American countries. The empanadas are recognized over the world, being the most recognized internationally the Empanadas Argentinas.
