This class presented by fourth-generation dumpling maker Angie Chong proves that the best things come in small (and delectable) packages. Engage in the story of the humble dumpling; from sourcing the best ingredients, preparing the dough and fillings, and techniques for rolling, wrapping, cooking and - most importantly - eating.
Learn how to wield those tiny rolling pins and use sustainable and locally-sourced ingredients to create your own little dough-wrapped parcels.Angie and her charismatic assistant Toshi will also demonstrate how to make Japanese gyoza, or ‘potsticker’ dumplings. BYO wine or beer and connect with other dim sum devotees over your freshly-made dumplings: the perfect Friday night alternative to the pub.
