¡dpm! does is the work of Clara Inés Schuhmacher, with input & support from Dan Edinberg. The blog originally began as an outlet for tinkerings around  empanadas ¡dpm!, our artisanal empanada co which we ran from 2009-2012. It is now an all-out exploration of what we eat , the makers who have come before us, and the experiences — both culinary and artistic — that are yet to come.


Clara is an artist, writer and multimedia producer based in Brooklyn, NY. She was born in Italy to Argentinean parents, and owes much of her love of food to this happy coincidence. She first learned to cook sitting on a stool in her abuela’s kitchen on Calle Tejeda in Córdoba, Argentina, and from there it was a short step to writing, curating and hosting esoteric dinner parties. She profiles mom’n’pop markets in the five boroughs for Serious Eats, and creates multimedia stories about urban farming and cooking-by-color for Organic Gardening. By day, she serves as the Director of Operations for the Make Music New York Festival, and makes time-based art with her collective vvitalny.

Here we are, as empanadas ¡dpm!, chatting with Mo Rocca on The Cooking Channel’s food(ography) back in 2010!

And for your amusement, a little song and dance…about empanadas.
