They all look great. Welcome to DC :)
I'd love the recipes for your wonton soup and cheese prawns! My favourites. I live in South Africa and the Asian food is not great here. All the take out joints sell the same things. Lots of sweet and sour and chowmein.

Ironically TheNightCooker last visited us about 4 months after making this post: Nov. 23, 2009, about three years ago. But the recipes still look good!

If you can get the ingredients we can give you lots of good Asian recipes. Asian cuisine is one of my specialties, particularly Thai and Chinese, and I really like making sushi although my best results have been the rolls. Nigiri not so good, the tops fall off!

Thanks, will be nicking some recipes off you then We can get all the ingredients here.
Any idea what to do with rice paper sheets? Bought them instead of rice paper wrappers for spring rolls. Not sure what to do with these, they're thinner. Kind of like the rice paper on White Rabbit sweets.

Hint Hint... I like asian soups, dumplings and Thai spring rolls most. Any recipes would be welcome

I think you can use the sheets the same way as wraps, that is of course if we are talking about the same thing. You may just have to cut them to size needed.

Rice paper sheets? Could you be talking abouut round tapioca sheets (approx 8" diameter) used in Vietnamese cuisine? If so I can tell you how to make those. I've got some right here as I type--I was going to make them last week but didn't.

They are rectangular sheets, the size of an A4 piece of paper. It has a sticker on that says rice paper.
I've got 4 packets!!! Help

It's the size of the paper in a regular school writing book.

It sounds to me like you've got something similar to parchment. If it's edible I don't know how to use it.

Edible parchment, now that's a novel idea

It's edible for sure! It seems to be the rice paper that they use for wrapping sweets. Not sure what else I could do with it though. Can't make white rabbit sweets and I bought it for spring rolls darnit
Guess I'm stuck with a stack of edible paper, maybe I'll start a new diet trend?!
