Taste of Taiwan: Scallion Pancakes

Try your hand at cooking a Taiwanese comfort food classic.

Students learn how to prepare crispy scallion pancakes with chicken. Pan-fried and served warm during chilly weather, scallion pancakes are also good to keep in the freezer for easy thawing, cooking and serving.

After sampling their kitchen efforts (recipes will be provided), students will enjoy a light lunch and soft drink.

Please inform the instructor of any dietary restrictions.

Growing up in Taiwan, Yoko Yanagisawa’s first foray into the kitchen was helping out at her family’s restaurant as a middle schooler. She has attended culinary schools and learned cooking from private instructors in Japan, Taiwan and the United States. She served as chair of the Chinese booth for Nishimachi International School’s food fair for two years.
