Chinese Dumplings: Chinese New Year is here and what better way to welcome the Year Of The Sheep than with a Dim Sum Beer Pairing. A hearty portion of hot steamed Shumai dumplings served with a dipping sauce followed by a sweet Beer And Dessert course of homemade, cast iron baked, Green Tea Sponge Cake drizzled with Honey Butter cream; served with Asahi Beer’s Asahi Super Dry, a very well attenuated (due to Asahi’s yeast strain No. 318) rice lager.
Green Tea Cake: eggs, maccha (or grind green tea into a powder), butter, flour, sugar, baking powder, cream, honey.
Chinese Dumpling: chicken (pork is more traditional, but chicken is bit healthier), shitake mushrooms, sesame oil, cornstarch, salt, freshly ground black pepper, homegrown scallion, ginger, rice wine, flour (or wonton wrappers, if you don’t want to make your own), egg, oil, steamed in a bamboo steamer mushiki seiro.
