This month's Community Dinner features Linda, our resident Southeast Asian cuisine instructor. Nasi Goreng translates to "fried rice" in Indonesian and Malay languages, and is a popular dish in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei. Fried rice is such a great way to feed a crowd and a key technique for the home cook. In this live demo, we hope to chat with you while Linda leads us through the steps to make fried rice in her kitchen, inspiring us to travel a bit with her and feed our communities.
