We're always looking to learn in the kitchen: We build towering cookbook collections, scour magazines for fresh ideas, and challenge ourselves with new recipes. But sometimes it's nice to have up-close, visual instruction on techniques that don't translate on the page.
This is why we've partnered with the team behind Craftsy, a website dedicated to helping you get better at what you love to do. Throughout the rest of the year, we'll be offering a special discount on a selection of virtual cooking classes, and you'll get the chance to learn new techniques on the cheap. (Bonus: You won't have to leave your kitchen. You won't even have to put shoes on.)
First up: Dumplings! Sign up this month, and you'll get to watch trusted cookbook author and teacher -- and former Piglet contender! -- Andrea Nguyen make a number of different Asian dumplings, from wontons to gyoza. You'll learn about each dumpling's origin, watch how to make them, and you'll even get to ask her questions in Craftsy's interactive classroom. You should probably start planning your dumpling
