The wonton. The less glamorous sister to the dumpling. Wontons are my ultimate comfort food but I’ve served these a little different to how we ate them growing up. This recipe makes 50 wontons and freeze well. So enjoy some now and freeze the rest for later. Wonton wrappers often come in packs of 100 so just double the recipe, or freeze half the wrappers. If you want to make the full 100 wontons, you might want to employ an extra pair of hands or put on your favourite podcast and settle in.

Bunny Eats Design at Ang Sarap

When Raymund from Ang Sarap invited me to write a guest post for him, first I felt honoured and then a little petrified. What could I possibly write that he hadn’t already covered? Raymund is an accomplished home cook right here in Auckland, New Zealand and has a huge following. His posts are frequent and expert and always with gorgeous photos. He cooks many kinds of Asian dishes and makes challenging ingredients accessible. I wanted to cook something original and inspired by Cantonese cuisine but relevant to what I like to eat. I considered a few things but in the end went with something I’m comfortable cooking with a new twist. Visit Ang Sarap for my write and and recipe for Pork and Apple Wontons with Balsamic Reduction.
