Master the roll, and you can improvise with all your favorite fillings.
Chef Robin has been showing people how to make delectable potstickers for many years, and you’ll learn all the tips and tricks in this class.The potsticker has it all- a chewy, fried bottom, and a tender, steamed top, all encasing a savory filling. Add a tangy dipping sauce and you have one of the tastiest appetizers on earth. Choose from pork, chicken or vegetarian shiitake-tofu fillings for your class.
