Asian Cooking Night
June 24 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm EDT
What is more delicious than potstickers? Siu Mai maybe? Egg Roll? Our talented Chef Ro will lead you through the creation of all three Asian favorites. But be warned – there will be a ton of food so you may want to halve the recipes or you will have a fair amount of leftovers. Or maybe invite some friends over to show off your skills!
