Cooking Workshop - Summer Roll & Dumplings

11:00 Corner Gallery Add this event to a calendar application
 Light and healthy, summer rolls are a hot-weather treat that are as refreshing as they are beautiful. The filling of mixed, colorful vegetables, shrimp or pork, and rice vermicelli gleams red, green and white through their translucent rice-wrapper skin. Analogous to spring rolls, summer rolls (gỏi cuốn) differ in that they are fresh -- not cooked at all -- so you taste the freshness of the ingredients in the wrapper. This favorite from Vietnam is one of the healthiest (and lowest-calorie) of appetizers, so you don't have to feel guilty for enjoying them!

And who doesn't like dumplings? Whether you call them jiaotze, gyoza, or mandoo, they're nothing short of delicious. We'll be learning the basics of making basic East Asian dumplings, and a few popular variations -- so that you can branch out, improvise, and tailor the filling to suit your own taste and preference. Boiled, steamed, fried, or served in soup, dumplings are versatile as an appetizer, main course, or snack.
