Dash of Soy will be hosting this one-hour cooking class to teach you how to make her family’s classic crispy scallion pancakes. The recipe uses three simple ingredients — flour, water and scallions — and is largely influenced by the techniques and tips you’ll learn in this class. You can enjoy the pancake on its own with a chili sauce, or as a side to your dinner served as bread. Either way, it’s absolutely delicious and a great recipe and skill to add to your repertoire.
