I’m still dreaming about these pinot empanadas and have been writing this post for hours! I’d love to know what you think of Chilean food. If you’re wondering what American salsa is, it’s a mixture of sliced cucumbers, pickled onions and pickled carrots. After eating a lot of fried empanadas in Colombia we really liked the fried Chilean version. There is a very funny TV show called “Gringolandia” about a Chilean man who moves to New York with his new girlfriend. Another popular dish is Pastel de Choclo, a sweet and savory dish that is essentially the Chilean version of shepherd’s pie. If this cocktail is too much for you, don’t worry: Chile has plenty of delicious and cheap wine.
