Love dumplings and eager to make them at home? Join us in this 2 hour dumpling extravaganza, where we’ll learn the basics of wrapping both Chinese dumplings and wontons.
Then we will move on to the cooking process, to learn a sure-fire method for pan-frying dumplings to crispy perfection. As for the wontons, so you can learn how versatile they can be, we will enjoy them as a deliciously spicy Sichuan appetizer.
And vegetarians are welcome! Both meat and vegetarian fillings will be available to work with.
We want to devote as much time as possible to wrapping and cooking. You'll also receive recipes for the fillings, sauces, and wrapping to take home so you can prepare your own fillings and refresh your memory of the wrapping process.
Even if you've never cooked Asian food, you can easily learn how to make scores of dumplings and summer rolls with these simple techniques.
What students are saying:
"Diana Kuan's class delivered the goods. I left knowing how to construct 3 different styles of won tons and 2 dumplings and a full belly. Although the fillings were already prepped pre-class for us, Diana provides you with recipes for both the veggie and meat based filling we used in class and a tasty dipping sauce. Diana's knowledge of Asian foods is excellent and her positive and enthusiastic energy non-plused. Great workshop.” -Melissa Arra
"Diana was a fantastic teacher. I loved how her class was focused on culinary techniques AND her personal experiences with Asian cuisine. I definitely left the class with great skills on how to make the perfect dumpling and wonton!” -Bruna Maia
