    Default The Wonton Chronicles

    A popular shortcut for fun. Jacques Pepin this weekend took one wonton
    wrapper, laid it down, covered it with herbs like basil leaves, then
    covered with another wrapper, and then rolled them out thinner til one
    (larger) sheet again and demonstrated you can then boil them like fresh
    pasta. Anything thin you can sandwich between two sheets will work.

    I want to try what one blogger has posted. She puts a raw egg yolk in
    the center of the wrapper, then carefully drapes another over, carefully
    sealing the edges before placing in boiling water. Kinda poaches the
    yolk, then serve drizzled w olive oil, salt and pepper, and dig in.

    I would love to take a wonton wrapper class. Another blogger makes
    lasagna cupcakes using layers of wonton wrappers. Still others make
    desserts using them.

    Wonton Wrapper Class? Why not just buy a package of wonton wrappers
    at the grocery store and play around with them at home? If you screw
    them up nobody but you knows you made a mess.

    I make Thai dumplings (one of my rfc signature dishes) using won ton
    wrappers. They're inexpensive and you get to eat what you screw up. What's
    not to like?

    I tried making ravioli using wonton wrappers.
    Did not work at all. Boiling them never
    produced a texture anything like ravioli.
