MDM has found that taking culinary classes is a great way to bring an international flare into your life while expanding your family’s palate, and eating gourmet at diy prices. One recent evening’s class at Lunds and Byerly’s supermarket provided food, fun, and a couple of surprises for $10. One of the many classes offered was a Dim Sum class taught by Ms. Cynthia Chauwan Crinklaw.
Dim Sum is basically stuffed Chinese dumplings. There is a whole genre that falls into this category including Sui Mai, potstickers, wontons,and sticky rice fried dumplings . At Lunds and Byerly’s Ms. Crinklaw presented a delectable trio of entrees including a dessert item of cantonese sweet tarts. While we were enjoying the samples her beautiful operatic voice entertained us with arias from Puccini and others.
Another surprise, we were given a $10 gift certificate to be applied to an item from their Culinary Shop or Gift Basket Shop. MDM found a signature retro bowl from Zak! retailing for $19.99, with $10 dollar coupon it was a steal, larger and more solid than Rachel Ray’s trash bowl, it comes in MDM’s favorite color of green and other contemporary colors of turquoise, orange, yellow confetti . Plus it is eco-friendly since it is made of recyclable plastic. How great is that?
Plus MDM made some new friends–you can’t expect a better night at school. Food, Friends, Fun, Entertainment and $10 coupon–Priceless!
