May 2015 Cooking Class
Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Hunan cuisine, originated from Hunan province in China, is quite popular in Chinese restaurants and well-known for its spicy flavor. Hunan beef is stir-fried beef strips with vegetables and chili pepper or chili sauce.

Wonton Soup is a Chinese appetizer loved by many restaurant-goers. Most restaurants serve pork wonton soup. In our class, we will make pork wonton and a home-style chicken wonton, which has a delicate flavor. Wonton can be a main course or a side dish if it is cooked differently. We will explore the different cooking methods with participants.

Both dishes will be demonstrated in the Monday, May 11 class from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the cooking lab, Room 206, Leverton Hall on the University of Nebraska East Campus. Instructors from the Confucius Institute at UNL will offer step-by-step recipes and instructions.  Participants will have the opportunity to have hands-on experience and taste the food made in class.  The cost is only $20, which includes course materials, handouts, tasting food, and drinks.  Please contact Angela Rystrom to register at 402-472-5370 or

Due to the capacity, class size is limited to 20 people. Payment must be made in advance of class.
