Sole-shaped Flaky Pastry


Updated: 2016-01-08

Sole-shaped flaky pastry has a flat, oval shape - or, in the locals' words, the shape of a shoe sole.

Made of flour and lard oil, it is crispy outside and soft inside.

Stories of the pastry vary but all involve Emperor Xiaozong and his concubine Chenfei from the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279).

This cooking class could be a great opportunity to build relationships between parents and kids, teachers and students, colleagues or neighbors.
