Our Story 

THE PASSION FOR EMPANADAS

IMG_7492.jpg

Chef Nelly’s passion for the culinary arts started at a very young age as cooking has always been a big family activity among the women she grew up with in the Dominican Republic.  It is among these wonderful women where Chef Nelly learned the secret family recipe passed down from her grandmother the art of dough rolling and making of pastelitos. These are known as empanadas in the Dominican Republic.

​After graduating from Culinary School in the Dominican Republic, Chef Nelly spent years experimenting with dishes and flavors around the world but always found herself going back to making Empanadas.  It wasn’t until she married into an Argentinean family that Chef Nelly started exploring the methods and recipes for making the perfect Argentinian Empanada.

The empanadas you see before you today are a labor of love that took over 2 years to perfect the recipe.  Each one of Nelly's Empanadas is handmade with love by our chef herself. Just as these became her family’s favorite Empanada, Chef Nelly hopes Empanadas Nelly's will becomes your family’s favorite too.
