We hope you’ve been training up your abs for another round of Dumpling Camp with Michelle Nguyen! Get ready to impress your family and friends with your newfound knowledge of how to make bahn bot loc la, a Vietnamese clear dumpling that originates from Hue, the Imperial City of Vietnam. These translucent dumplings are made from tapioca starch, filled with a seasoned mixture of pork belly and shrimp, folded into banana leaves, and steamed until the dumpling inside is crystal clear. You’ll dip your fresh-cooked dumplings into homemade scallion oil and nuoc cham and eat to your heart’s content.
This is a live, hands-on cooking class held in your kitchen via Zoom. Class is meant to be as interactive as it would be at our table, with the instructor teaching you how to prepare each recipe. Each class ticket is for one kitchen, and we welcome group cooking on the same screen. To learn more about how class will go visit our FAQ page.
There are two options for gathering ingredients for this class! You can shop for your own ingredients or we are happy to pre-measure ingredients and assemble them into a 4-serving kit. And if you like to sip wine while you cook, consider adding a lovingly paired bottle with your kit!
You can preview the ingredients and equipment needed by FOLLOWING THIS LINK. One week before class we will send out a detailed shopping list, and a few days before class we will email you a detailed recipe packet and Zoom link. All classes are listed in Pacific Time.
