I am logged in but the video only shows the introduction.
Your website needs work. Please tell us how to get this recipe.

Sorry! Check out the CooksClub page to learn more about the benefits of subscribing to the site (copy and paste the link into your browser - http://www.finecooking.com/cooksclub). Hope that helps.

I don't want to end up paying for another year if I am already a yearly member. Posted: 8:35 pm on January 27th

Very nice presentation. Does anyone know if rice wrappers would work for this recipe or would they be too flimsy? I try to avoid wheat gluten if I can. I sure will put the filling to use in some way.
Thanks! Posted: 7:08 am on January 12th

SUSAN210 writes: Fine Cooking REALLY needs to work on its website. Even after I log in I often have difficulty viewing material that is supposed to be accessible to me. Surely, members who are already logged in should not constantly be confronted with ads to become members. They should go right to the material they're trying to view. FRUSTRATING!!!

Just below that, you'll see a free trial for CooksClub, then a note: "Already a member? Login Here." Log in and you'll be good to go. Posted: 4:13 pm on January 7th

I've posted only the introduction to the series here for everyone to watch, CooksClub members and non-members alike. If you are CooksClub members, check the post again for clearer links near the bold text. And definitely DO report back after you make them! Posted: 12:21 pm on January 6th

This is an excellent and intriguing introduction to making
pot stickers. I would like to see the entire video. As soon as I can see the whole thing I'll make a batch and report back.

I understood that the entire video was to be available on Dec. 28th. Is that correct? Posted: 4:22 pm on January 4th
