Surprise your sweetie and amaze your friends by making them siu mai shaped like roses. Learn how at this At the Table event with food stylist and blogger Kristina Cho. Cho will show us her technique for making these special pork and shrimp dumplings, so you can make them at home. After the demonstration, Cho will sign copies of her cookbook “Mooncakes & Milk Bread,” which includes the recipe for these beautiful dumplings and so much more.

Kristina Cho is a first-generation Chinese American who grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, and spent a lot of her childhood at her family’s Chinese restaurant. As an adult, she moved to San Francisco and found a new home in the Inner Richmond neighborhood. Her food blog, Eat Cho Food, began as a creative outlet that eventually grew to a point where she quit her job in architecture to pursue cooking and recipe development full-time. Kristina’s first cookbook, Mooncakes & Milk Bread, is a joyful celebration of Chinese culture and the bakeries that bring a little sweetness to Chinatowns across the country.
