Join MOCA virtually and learn how to prepare your own delicious Pan-Fried Noodles in Superior Soy Sauce. Pulled from the critically-acclaimed Nom Wah Cookbook: Recipes and Stories from 100 Years at New York City's Iconic Dim Sum Restaurant, this recipe for four was crafted by Julie Cole, the Operations Manager and Chef at Nom Wah Tea parlor, and Wilson Tang, owner and operator of the Nom Wah restaurant group. Chef Julie will walk the audience through the process of making these fragrant, satisfying noodles which embody Cantonese cooking’s high-wire act during the first portion of the event.
Once the dish has been fully prepared and everyone is ready to dig in, Wilson Tang will begin the discussion segment with Nancy Yao Maasbach, MOCA President, and talk about the experience of writing their new cookbook. There will also be an opportunity at the end of this segment for questions from the audience.
Please note that you will need to have a pot or a wok on hand, and your ingredients should be pre-measured before the beginning of the session. The ingredient list and detailed preparation steps will be accessible in a downloadable link in the registration email.
