Learn to make Chinese Turnip Cake

Kennewick Community Education is offering a class on Chinese Turnip Cake.

Healthy and delicious, the cake is a Chinese dim sum dish made of shredded radish (typically Chinese radish or daikon) and plain rice flour.

This recipe is traditionally made during the Chinese New Year season and is one of the standard dishes in the dim sum cuisine of Hong Kong and overseas Chinatown restaurants.

The Chinese New Year falls on Jan. 31.

The class is from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Jan. 30 at Kamiakin High School. Cost is $21.

Advance registration is required at communityed.ksd.org. For more information, call 222-5080.

Popcorn snacking

Whether you prefer to pop your corn on the stove, in the microwave or in an air popper, it's one of the first munchies that comes to mind on movie night.

Many like their popcorn dressed simply with salt and butter, but it's also delicious dusted with parmesan cheese, chili powder or any one of a variety of herbs and spices.

For ideas, go to The Popcorn Board's website, www.popcorn.org.
