Cooking Class - Traditional Rice Dumplings for the Dragon Boat Festival

Saturday, June 1, 2019, 8:00 PM

The Dragon Boat Festival 端午节 is approaching and it’s time to make some delicious dumplings 粽子 to celebrate! Do you know why there is a tradition to have the dragon boat race and eat dumplings during the day?  An honorable minister 屈原 in ancient times was banished by a repressive emperor, so he drowned himself in the river. Local people who admired him raced out in their boats to try to retrieve his body. People also dropped sticky rice dumplings into the river so that the fish would eat them instead of the minister's body.  Join us to learn how to make dumplings with different shapes and flavors and taste them too!  Chef Instructor: Winnie   What you will be expecting: o   History, traditional food and how to celebrate Dragon Boat Festival o   How to prepare all ingredients for rice dumplings o   How to wrap rice dumplings properly o   Four rice dumplings for each attendee Menu: o   Rice dumpling with pork  鹹肉粽 o   Rice dumpling with red bean paste  豆沙粽 o  Rice dumpling with assorted rice and beans  高纖雜豆粽 To avoid Eventbrite processing fee, please visit: https://www.urbantablewa.com/product-page/traditional-rice-dumplings-for-the-dragon-boat-festival
