Last Thursday, the Skillshare Project hosted an enjoyable lunch time skillshare creating vegetarian (spinach, curly kale, onion, spring onion, garlic, ginger, feta, parmesan and mozzarella) and meat (beef with onions, spring onions, garlic, ginger, celery and mint (as we couldn't find any Sichuan pepper)) momos which are a typical Tibetan dumpling. After we rolled the dough, cut into circles and learnt the special technique to fold them after inserting a filling, they were steamed for a few minutes. Finally we got to sample our work with a range of sauces which included: sweet chilli; sherry and soya sauce; coriander leaves, yoghurt, green and red chillies, and also one of coriander leaves, green and red chillies with tomatoes.
Serendipitously it was also one of the attendee's birthdays which meant there was also chocolate cake and of course lots and lots of tea (although no butter tea this time!)
This skillshare was timed to coincide with Tibetan New Year (Losar) which this year falls on 2nd March (2014). To learn more about the tradition of celebrating this festival, please see here.
Many more free skillshares are planned on a wide range of subjects in the coming months. To subscribe to the fortnightly newsletter detailing them, please complete the online form here or see the Skillshare Project page.
