Pham’s Dumpling Dojo will only be housed there temporarily, says CHS, as Bank of America has plans to take over that site.

I’ve got the goods here at home, now all I need is some hands-on instruction.

You’ll hear more from us on that count after we catch up with Andrea. Meanwhile, if you’re planning on trying some DIY-dumpling-action in honor of the Lunar New Year — which falls on Valentine’s Day (sweet!) — here’s a tempting tutorial from the dexterous Ms. Nguyen:
