Are you excited for another Field Trip Friday?!
This month, we are exploring different cultures from all over the world, and we are doing that by exploring that specific region’s food! As we continue our venture of exploring different cultures, this week we find ourselves in South America, and heading over to Argentina!
Argentinian food is interesting because it is very diverse! European settlers made their way to Argentina, and you see a lot of their influence in the food today. Food, such as pizza, is a very popular dish in the country that was brought over by Italian settlers. Even with a lot of European influence, you still see a lot of the local palettes showcased in their cuisine.
One well known dish found in Argentina is empanadas! Scholars believe that empanadas were brought over by Spanish settlers centuries ago, and since then they have become a street food staple in areas like the capital, Buenos Aires! Usually, empanadas are made with a flour-based dough and can be filled with all kinds of different things! Ingredients such as beef, chicken, cheese, onion, and spinach are just a few. Interested in learning to make your own empanadas at home? Watch the video below, and follow the recipe!
