Potstickers are popular dumplings present on many Chinese menus all across America. They are typically stuffed with a protein and vegetables, wrapped in dough and thinly rolled out. The dumplings are then sealed by carefully pressing and pleating the dough.
Potstickers with Noi will show you the most popular way of cooking a potsticker. Known as the “fry-steam-fry” method, the dumplings are first lightly browned in oil, water is added to the pan, which is then covered to steam and cook the dumpling filling. Then the pan is uncovered to allow the water cook off and the dumplings pan fry until crispy on the outside! Potstickers with Noi will be a fun, hands-on class. Noi will teach you how to stuff and wrap two different types, chicken with vegetable and a vegan tofu dumpling. You will also learn how make a perfect sweet and tangy soy dipping sauce to compliment the potstickers.
