Salt Lake City, Nov. 18— Craft Lake City and Argentina’s Best Empanadaspresent the December Empanadas Workshop with Ana Valdemoros. The workshop will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 14, at Argentina’s Best Empanadas from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Feeling nostalgic one Saturday morning at the Downtown Farmers Market, Ana Valdemoros decided to start selling freshly baked empanadas to Salt Lake City. The following summer, Valdemoros opened a small booth at the Farmers Market to sell traditional Argentine empanadas with fresh ingredients and fillings that appeal to the local palate. In 2016, Valdemoros opened Argentina’s Best Empanadas’ storefront in downtown Salt Lake City, where she sells five kinds of empanadas that strive to meet the freshness and quality of the highest caliber.
“I’m so excited to teach this workshop and share my most favorite thing in the world!” says Valdemoros. “People will make and bake their own empanadas or take them home, un-cooked, to be saved for a different day.”
Workshop participants will learn the basics of filling and folding empanadas and will go home with half a dozen of each two types of empanadas: sweet pumpkin cheesecake and savory Beehive Cheese and green onion.
There is a $35 material fee for this workshop, which includes empanada education and supplies to make one dozen empanadas. Pre-registration is required. Register here. Visit craftlakecity.com/workshops or our Facebook for more information.
