Did you know you can easily make dumplings with what's in your kitchen right now?
In this online dumpling-making class, you'll learn how to make crispy and delicious potstickers, with no need to hunt for specialty ingredients.
Using everyday kitchen ingredients, we'll make wrappers from scratch, then whip up a variety of fillings using both meat and vegetarian ingredients. You'll learn easy ways to fold your dumplings, and an almost fool-proof way of pan-frying your potstickers to perfection.
There is a wide variety of dumpling fillings you can make with the ingredients you already have, so don't be afraid to be creative! We'll also leave room at the end of the class to answer questions and discuss what kind of dumplings you can make with your assortment of kitchen ingredients.
