About Us

Empanada Gourmet offers a wide variety of Uruguayan baked goods: empanadas, masitas, alfajores, bizcochos, pasta frolla, fruit tarts, vegetable pies, and much more. Uruguayan cuisine is a combination of cuisines from several countries including France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Portugal. Our family descended from immigrants from these countries who colonized Uruguay and brought their own recipes. These recipes were considered “treasures” because they were a way to keep them connected with their homeland. We will recreate these treasured recipes so you can experience a part of Uruguayan history through our delicate and unique baked goods.
