Do you see yourself eating a half-a-kilo empanada? Discover the traditions of Pomaire, a small town close to Santiago. Its “greda” pottery, which is a brown clay, is represented in cups, pots, plates and animal shapes, which are a perfect souvenir to bring back home.
If you want to save for your next trip to Chile, you have to buy one of the typical “greda piggy banks”, that you would then have to break to get the money you’ve saved.
Chilean empanadas are prepared with different fillings, but the casing is, in general, wheat flour. The most popular versions are the so-called “de pino” (spiced up mix of diced beef and onion) and the seafood variety.
