Craftsman [ˈkrɑːftsmən] n pl -men 1. (Clothing, Personal Arts & Crafts / Crafts) a member of a skilled trade; someone who practices a craft; artisan.

Lumpia are pastries of Chinese origin similar to spring rolls popular in Indonesia and the Philippines. A variant is the Vietnamese lumpia, wrapped in a thinner piece of pastry, in a size close to a spring roll though, the wrapping closes the ends off completely, which is typical for lumpia.

Notice this part:  “the wrapping closes the ends off completely, which is typical for lumpia.”

My dear friends, today I learned quickly that it takes a true craftsman to make homemade lumpia.

And now to break the rules, I will post a second picture for the photo challenge subject, “Craftsman.”  Because when you get one out of twenty right, the tiny bit of craftsman in you wants to shout it from the rooftops!  (Or the deck of the beach house…)Corolla Lumpia

  • Oh hell yeah! That looks delicious.

  • Paula Wooters

    Woohoo! What time is dinner, Katherine?

  • Amazing what one learns in this little competition. Thanks for the lesson. Looks delicious.

  • Ron

    I LOVE spring rolls, so I know I would enjoy these too!

    “My dear friends, today I learned quickly that it takes a true craftsman to make homemade lumpia.”

    Yes, it’s the same with making sushi.

    Great shot, Katherine!

    Perseverance pays off, yet again!

    Well done, you!
    Suddenly I’m hungry…….LOL

  • I’d never heard of lumpia. What is inside it???

  • you should bronze this one!

  • ladyV

    looks pretty tasty and yes, what’s inside.

    • Pork, shredded carrot/cabbage (tiny bit), green onion, garlic, soy sauce, pepper… and calories!

  • that looks delicious!! Well done, Katherine!! xoxox

  • It looks delicious! I hope you made enough for all of us. 😉

  • Dang, now I’m hungry. I don’t think a rocking horse will satisfy my craving, either.

  • Mmm…looks delish!

  • My sister was married to two Filipino guys (not at the same time), and she makes a mean lumpia. I’m not crazy about them though. (Fried? Ugh!)

  • I don’t know which looks better the lumpia or the beach. It’s a close call.

  • Dang I’m hungry! Great job. I am going to have to try one some day.

  • MikeWJ

    I want one. Badly. I love all things egg roll, even something with a disgusting name like lumpia, which sounds more like a disease than something you’d eat. Nice take on today’s theme, Katherine!
