Etomology of The Empanada
The “empanada” is a type of turnover pastry that originated from the Spanish and Portuguese cultures. The word and the food alike was introduced to the English in the 1920's from
Galicia, Spain where it's believed to be the birth place of this dish.
The word “Empanada” is the past-participle adjective (fem.) of the word “Empanar” which means to roll in pastry.
The prefix “em” comes from Latin which means to cover or engulf. And the suffix “pa” comes from the Indo-Europeans which means to feed. Combined they became the basis for the words “Pan“ or “Panis“ that translates to bread.
Hence the empanada is made by folding dough or bread into a patty formed around a filling. The sweet or savory fillings can consist of a variety of meats, vegetables and even fruits.
