Join Jade, our native Chinese instructor and learn about the fundamentals of Chinese dumplings and wontons. We’ll pinch, squeeze, and pleat our way to a succulent and satisfying meal. We will make traditional boiled dumplings served with soy dipping sauces, pan-fry others for crispy potstickers, and prepare shrimp wontons in an authentic wonton soup. Using pork, Napa cabbage, Chinese chives, & seafood, we’ll make various traditional fillings from scratch. Enjoy a dumpling feast in this introductory class and take home the rest.
