Celebrate Chinese New Year with Chinese Wontons with Jeannie Wood

Celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year, the Year of the Sheep, with versatile Wontons, which can be eaten as appetizers, a side dish, or a main dish. Learn a variety of ways to fold wontons and Jeannie’s special recipe for Pork and Shrimp Filling, steeped in a Sizzling Ginger and Onion Broth. We will make a simple, but robust sweet-and-sour sauce, which adds zing to fried wontons as appetizers. Finally, a savory sauce of fermented black soybeans topped with vegetables adds another twist to these flavor-filled dumplings. Jeannie Wood, the Executive Director of Community Asian Theatre of the Sierra – CATS – enjoys sharing her family recipes and favorite foods. Dairy-free.
