Who we are
In 2005 Nicolas Tallarico, a gifted chef, left Argentina and moved to Toronto, armed with his mother’s recipes and a dream – to bring the empanada excellence to Toronto and Canada.
The House of Empanadas was born and destined for artisan and taste greatness.
The House of Empanadas started selling empanadas to a vendor at the Brickworks Market every Saturday, and then opened a booth in the Distillery District Sunday Market, soon after we did many diferents farmers markets around the city. Inspired by the warm Toronto embrace, House of Empanadas, started creating new and exciting combinations of flavours, with an emphasis on savoury and beautiful Argentinian /Canadian flavours.
The House of Empanadas Difference
We source locally and are devoted to sustainable and ethical ingredients. House of Empanadas has created a fresh take on frozen cuisine by balancing quality ingredients, unique taste and ethics to create a memorable gastronomic experience on take out or ready to bake at home empanadas.
