Argentinean Family Hopes Its Empanadas Catch On Big

September 16, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A family with roots in Argentina – and a restaurant in a Chicago suburb – hopes that its culinary specialty catches on big. The specialty is empanadas, half-moon shaped pies made with wheat flour dough and stuffed with meat and cheese (savory) or apple, brown sugar and cinnamon (dessert). Meat-filled empanadas are a food staple in Argentina, where the gauchos (cowboys) found them easy to carry around while working. The Schamber family has opened two locations of EmpanadUS, and plan to open more.
