粽子 Handmade Zhang X 3 (Savory & Sweet)
Growing up, I remember being in awe of the brightly decorated giant dragon boats that race in the river near my Ah-ma’s home. The many racers would paddle furiously in unison to the frenzied drummer leading the charge. After the races, we would head to Ah-ma’s home for delicious home made rice dumplings.
These days, I make our Teochew-Hokkien 肉粽 Bak Zhang because it is an homage my grandma. With the sheer amount of work to prep and hand tie them all individually, almost no one in the family makes them anymore. Our family 肉粽 is super lux as it typically has more filling than rice. Ah-ma would always say 要够料Ai Gao Liao (must have lots of filling). Being able to make it and share this food heritage with the Portland community makes us very happy.
1 X Large Bamboo 肉粽 Bak Zhang - This savory dumpling is made with shallot oil infused glutinous rice. Filled with five spiced soy pork belly, shitake mushroom, house made yellow mung beans, OMG! Sambal® Hae Bee Hiam dried shrimp, red date and organic chestnut.
2 x Small Bamboo 红豆粽子 Ang Dao Kee Zhang - This sweet dumpling is extra chewy through the addition of natural alkaline. Filled with house made adzuki red bean paste.
Handmade Tamales x 2 (Savory & Sweet)
We love that we can find locally ground masa made by the Three Sisters Nixtamal right here in Portland. As the leafy veggies start their glorious appearance, the first tamale is a savory version filled with seasonal veggies, Oaxaca style locally made Don Froylan cheese. The second is a sweet tamale inspired by the amazing berries coming into season here in Oregon.
Corn husk – Yellow organic corn masa. Filled with mixed berries, organic fruit preserve and dried organic cherries.
Banana leaf – Blue organic corn masa. Filled with seasonal veggies, caramelized onions & Oaxaca cheese.
Sweet: Milo Tres Leche, sharing portion for 2
Decadently delicious sponge cake, so named because of the three types of milk that is used. Milo is a malted chocolate powder that is usually made into a milk drink usually for kids back in Singapore. I made it for Luna and we both had the eureka moment to create this version.
Sweet: Kueh Sago Gula Melaka, sharing portion for 2
Luscious sago drenched in coconut milk and gula melaka aka coconut palm sugar
