Come join us for a fun Sunday afternoon making Tang Yuan with other APIQWTC folks. Tang Yuan is a traditional Chinese dessert soup that means “soup balls.” It symbolizes family togetherness and harmony. What better way to enjoy these dessert dumplings than gathering together with a chosen family that is accepting of who you are? A time where we can just be our gay selves and cook together in a kitchen with other queer foodies? This sweet dessert is typically cooked and celebrated during Winter Solstice, but what the heck – Tang Yuan can be enjoyed anytime of the year! For a refreshing summer treat, it will be served in a chilled gingery sweet soup. For an added twist, we will be showing our pride by making (naturally) rainbow-colored Tang Yuan. It’s definitely a hands-on project that will have you rolling glutinous mochi dough around flavors like black sesame, mung bean, and peanuts. This workshop can get a bit powdery, messy, and hot, so dress comfortably.
Please note that if you have allergies, the home has one hypoallergenic rescue dog that is very gentle and sweet.
Cost: $10/person to cover materials
Location: This event will take place at One Marina apartment complex, which shares a driveway with the Courtyard Marriott. You may park on the One Marina property. We will post a phone number closer to the event date that you can call when you arrive.
Note: This event is part of an ongoing monthly series for APIQWTC members looking for friends who also share their love and passion of cooking, teaching and geeking out about food.
