What is Lynna’s Heritage?
Lynna is of Chinese heritage. Her mother’s secret egg roll recipe is an homage to her Chinese background. It’s a two-day process that begins with slow-cooked pork. Cabbage, bamboo shoots, Chinese dried mushrooms, and green onions are also included in the stuffing.
She serves them with apricot puree-based sweet and sour sauce. Her mother never recorded a recipe. She learned how to make them just by watching her mother, and she wishes to pass the tradition on to her daughters as well.
