Vegetarian Night in Asia

Let’s explore Asia without leaving the US. Many Asian vegetables are now available in local grocery stores. Each variety needs a different cooking technique to bring out its best flavor. We’ll make succulently braised king trumpet mushrooms with Thai basil, Taiwanese cabbage, and Chinese celery with Shaoxing wine. We’ll make egg drop soup with winter bamboo shoots and seasonal vegetarian dishes highlighting Asian cookery techniques. We’ll finish the class with taro and coconut milk dessert. Leave your passports at home. Instructor: Jason Wang
