National Empanada Day

Even if empanadas are unfamiliar to you, chances are you've enjoyed one of their distant and delightful relatives. Originating from Galicia, Spain, empanadas have transcended borders and can now be found in over 30 countries in various forms. The name is derived from "empanar," meaning "to bread" in Spanish and Portuguese. While some historians debate the true meaning, humorously suggesting it could be "Can I have another?" - even if it's not a historical fact, we can certainly embrace that spirit as National Empanada Day arrives on April 8!
