"The Best We Could Do" and Dumplings
In this experience we combine the graphic novel: The Best We Could Do written by Thi Bui with Vietnamese Dumpling making and storytelling by In My Kitchen host Raymond.
After reading the novel, gather your group for a cooking class via zoom and hear the stories of Raymond's own journey as a refugee from Vietnam to Canada. In My Kitchen Founder Paula Mohammed will facilitate your cooking class book club offering a unique opportunity to compare and contrast the journey of the author and that of Raymond. Allowing you to go a step further than the traditional book club discussion. Raymond will teach you his family recipe for dumpling making creating space for discussion and storytelling.
This is only offered as a private culinary adventure and a minimum of 6 registrations is required.
Locally sourced dumpling making rollers are available here and The Best We Could Graphic Novel is available from the In My Kitchen Cookbook Club here. Or purchase both together with the class and save 20%. Making this a memorable experience for book clubs, team building or a gathering of friends from nearby and far away.
The Best We Could Do is a 2017 illustrated memoir written by Thi Bui. It chronicles Thi Bui's parents' life before and during the Vietnam War, their escape from Vietnam when Bui was a child, and their eventual migration to the United States as refugees.
