In Argentinian culture, empanadas are a food staple of daily life. Empanadas began as a working man's lunch item because of its ability to act as an all encompassing food item; everything fit inside of a delicious and easy to carry dough pocket! The ease of this food was not lost upon the following generations of Argentinians. In current day, empanadas have become a food that are sought out for several different reasons. Many families have a day of the week dedicated to an empanada dinner, where they may be home cooked by a member of the family, a maid, or ordered as takeout/delivery. They are sought out for parties and family get togethers because of their ease as well! The variety normally offered in Argentinian empanadas is wide enough to appease to every member of the family, so they are the only food item necessary. Lastly, they are a widely enjoyed street food. They can easily be consumed while walking, so they are found on many street corners and fairs.
