If you think on the tastes of tango in a culinary way, you always immediately think on empanadas? Or is there something else inspiring?
Most probably the first empanadas were found in Persia and date back to 100 BC. The second empanada milestone was the landing of the Moors in Gibralta where they shared this folded pastry with both Spain and Portugal. The Spanish loved it, created a their own term for it, and then went to work spreading their recipe worldwide as they conquered the West. One of the Catalan Chefs, Roberto De Nola added the empanada recipe to the very first published cook book in Spain in 1520, Llibre del Coch.
Anybody who wants to share a delicious recipe?
