Notice something new by our Prepared Foods department? Welcome the latest addition to our store, the Dosateria. What’s a dosa? It’s an Indian-style crepe made with rice and lentil or whole grain batter and rolled with savory fillings. The menu will also include frankies (flatbread laced with egg) and biryani bowls (filled with basmati rice). The lassi bar will serve sweet and savory yogurt drinks, spiced to perfection, plus try raw cane juice pressed right inside the Dosateria .

Sunday, September 14th
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM
Bowery Culinary Center, 2nd floor, $50

Dim sum literally means “a touch of the heart” because you share a variety of small, lovingly prepared dishes with family and friends. It is a Cantonese tradition that became popular in teahouses along southern China, where weary travelers would stop for a cup of tea and some food. Culinary Center Educator Wai Chu will discuss how this meal has become a ritual for so many Chinese families, and he’ll show you how to make authentic dim sum in your home kitchen.

On the Menu: Pork & Shrimp Shao Mai Dumplings; Spareribs with Black Bean Sauce; Seafood-Stuffed Hot Peppers; Chicken & Rice Wrapped in Lotus Leaves; Egg Custard Tarts.
Instructor: Wai Chu, Culinary Center Educator
