Ever had some really amazing dim sum and been tempted to try to recreate it at home? Me too, but then I remember that my Chinese food-making experience is limited to nuking potstickers from Trader Joe’s. Luckily, the Farm on Adderley aims to eliminate some of the intimidation factor with its Chinatown Shop & Cook event this Sunday. Meet at 1pm in Sunset Park, where chef Tom Kearney will guide you through a few Asian markets, pointing out key ingredients and explaining how to incorporate them into your own kitchen. Later that evening, the group will reconvene at the restaurant to enjoy a special dinner inspired by the shopping trip, complete with recipe cards that you can take with you and use at home. The total cost of the shopping excursion and dinner is $60 per person, excluding drinks, and you can reserve a spot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. –K.H.
