We had such fun hosting a sold out class featuring handmade noodles in July. With this new edition to the theme, we are exploring another noodle, this time without gluten. These bouncy noodles will be chewy, slippery, and perfect for slurping! We will serve these naturally gluten-free noodles with a classic Sichuanese red chili crisp oil and a Lao-style chicken noodle soup.
Liang Fen Cold Hand Cut Noodles – Slippery Cold Mung Bean Noodle with Cucumber in a Spicy Chile Dressing
Sichuan Red Oil – Aromatic Condiment
