About your host

I am a chilean journalist, who doesn't speaks English, but passionate about Latin America and cooking. I came to Brazil to do a master's course and I stayed here.

What we’ll do

First and most important thing: I DON´T speak English! Unfortunately, that´s the truth. But if you love cooking and are willing to learn how to make chilean empanadas, this is the right experience. But don't worry: besides mimicry, my wife speaks better English and could translate some expressions for us. Once I was totally honest, hope you’re still interested. Chilean cuisine is an important…

What else you should know

I live in a small apartment on the fifteenth floor, with limited space and where my delivery also works. I mean, there is noise from the city center and also from the refrigerators. Nothing that may disturb, but do not be alarmed when the engine of a freezer turns on.

What I’ll provide

Snacks and Other
- Each participant will do from 3 to 5 empanadas. For filling, there is meat and caramelized onion with cheese. We also have vegan options. The students can take all the snacks made at the workshop. At the end, we will have a dessert made with fruits and Wine.
Drinks
- Chilean Black Tea - Natural Chilean Apple Juice - 1 Pisco Sour: Typical drink from Chile which will be made during the experience. - One bottle of Chilean red wine. You choose between: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carménère, Syrah or Malbec. As I work with products from Chile, I will not always have all these kinds of wine, but at least 3 grapes will be offered.
Tickets
Each participant will have the issues that are needed to cook, as bowl and roll – don´t worry about that. Sure, all the ingredients for the dough. A certificate and the recipes to take home.

What to bring

Comfortable clothes to make the empanadas and to work with the flour. Patience: remember I mentioned I don´t speak English?.

Where you'll be

Have I told you I don’t speak English? Well, I do not. And my wife will help us during the experience. The experience will happen in my apartment, at Rua Salvador Leme, 129, apto 152, in the neighborhood of Bom Retiro, 2 blocks from the Tiradentes station. During the workshop, we will always have Chilean music in the background. At the end, certificates and printed recipes will be given to the guests, so they can practice and repeat it at home…. while remember of the Chilean who didn't speak English at all, but is certainly an excellent empanada´s teacher.
