These Dan Dan Noodles Are Totally IrresistibleRecipes
Dan dan noodles are one of the great classics of Sichuanese cooking, and to understand what makes them so simple yet irresistible, we have to understand their origins. “Dan dan” comes from the vaguely onomatopoeic reference to a traditional street peddler’s shoulder pole (dan): a basket hanging from one end of the pole fills his pots, pans and bowls, while another basket hanging from the other end contains his noodles and garnishes, swaying and bouncing as he walks.

Folding wontons may look complicated, but they’re actually quite easy. All you have to do is fold the filled wrapper in half to form a triangle, then bring the bottom corners together to finish the fold. You can also use this activity as a fun group gathering if you can recruit some extra hands to make the folding go faster.

Have You Tried Corn Juice? You Should!Skills
Want another way to enjoy that glorious summer corn? How about a cool, sweet glass of corn juice! Many cultures have corn-based drinks, from Central American atol de elote to Peruvian chicha morada. Corn juice or corn milk is also popular in Asian countries like China, Thailand, and Vietnam, where it might be served plain or mixed with milk or sugar. I find that homemade corn juice rarely needs anything extra — it’s naturally sweet and creamy, yet delicate.

A Visual Guide to 10 Varieties of Asian GreensSkills
I love the vegetable section in Asian grocery stores because there are so many greens to choose from, especially when I’m tired of kale and chard. But for those who haven’t cooked a lot with Asian greens, the produce aisle might be a bit overwhelming, especially since the greens can go by multiple names. As with most greens, Asian greens can be steamed, stir-fried, stewed, braised, chopped, and cooked in dumplings or soups. Some of these can even be served raw in salads!

Cooking Rice: Do You Use the First Knuckle Method?Skills
A friend reminded me yesterday of an old trick used to get the correct water-to-grain ratio when cooking rice. It’s simple: pour the rice into the pan you’re going to cook it in. Level it out and place your index finger so that it is touching the surface of the rice. Add enough water so that it comes up to your first knuckle — I usually use the crease on the palm-side of my finger. Do you use this method?
