    My version of fantastically delicious Argentinean empanadas. Shop-bought puff pastry makes this a cinch. Any meat can be used for this recipe, just be sure to cut it up into tiny pieces.

    Ceviche is popular throughout Latin America and this prawn and scallop version is the perfect make-ahead starter. While Peru is most famous for its ceviche, there are variations of the recipe throughout Latin America, and this is one of them!

    A classic Latin American dish - the seafood is cooked by the acidity of the lime juice. This is so easy to make, but will impress even the most discerning of guests! Fresh ingredients are a must in this recipe.
