Chilean Wine and Empanadas Tasting
July 30, 2022
Chile in the heart of The Netherlands
In partnership with Leticia’s recipes, we present to you a Chilean Wine and Empanadas Tasting.
On this occasion you’ll have a taste of a traditional Sopaipillas (deep fried dough), one of Chile’s most popular street foods, topped with a fresh chancho en piedra, a very fresh salsa to complement each other, to start….
A wine tasting, sampling FOUR Chilean wines – white, rose, red merlot and the unique carmenere, that grow only in Chile. The wines comes from the award winning vineyard Aromo.
Leticia’s Recipes have carefully paired these unique wines (not easily found in the Dutch market) with our selection of famous empanadas, you will find something for everybody, from seafood lovers to beef, chicken and vegan/vegetarians.
Something sweet? Yes, how can you not have dessert….. this time honoring Leticia’s Belgian side she will make a fluffy, airy light Callebaut chocolate mousse
Good food, good wine, good times….
This time we are also making our dinner extra special with a quiz about Wines and Chilean poetry and Music . We will have a deck of Questions and little snippets of the Chilean Culture to transport you to the Poets’ land through this experience.
