Join guest presenter and Masterchef Alumnus Mai Nguyen for her virtual cooking class on Shrimp Empanadas. Though Empanadas in Argentina are typically made with beef, seafood is featured during Lent and we love this combination of Shrimp with cheese, red pepper, and herbs and spices. And during your online cooking class you’ll also learn to make Mai’s Roasted Jalapeno Chimichurri Sauce, the perfect accompaniment to your Empanadas.
