What separates a “just okay” empanada from a truly great empanada? For Ismael Castro, executive chef and co-owner of the Toronto-based food truck and catering service El Bosco, it’s all about the dough. “Every country in Latin America has their [own] empanadas,” he tells us. “The Argentineans have flour ones… and those are baked. The Mexicans, we have our corn dough… same as Venezuela's and Colombia’s.”  Having grown up in Mexico, Castro was no stranger to Mexican-style empanadas — which he says are typically made with white corn — but he first tasted the stuffed pastry that’s now a staple on El Bosco’s menu while visiting his business partner Marcela Geer’s family in Colombia. It was love at first bite. “It’s literally the way they make them… when you make your own dough with your own corn that you grind, that’s the key [to] the dish.” According to Castro the fresh corn dough retains less oil in the cooking process, meaning “you don’t have to let them sit and then [dab them] with paper towel… you literally just deep fry them for 6-7 minutes and they’re ready to go. If you can take the heat on the inside, they’re ready to go.” Sold.   Marta Ramirez Guerra’s Colombian Beef Empanadas By Ismael Castro “It was actually my business partner’s brother’s wife… who taught me how to make [these empanadas],” Castro says. “It’s a lot of work, it takes a lot of effort, manually, physically, but it pays off.”
