In southern China, dim sum is as much an art form as it is a meal. If you love dim sum and want to try making it at home, come join in our hands-on workshop. This class is for both beginners and cooks who've had some Chinese cooking under their belts. (If you've attended Dim Sum Favorites in the past, we're doing 3 brand new dishes, though Dim Sum Favorites is not a prerequisite.)
We'll tackle 3 hands-on dishes that you can incorporate into your cooking repertoire:
- Crystal Shrimp Dumplings (Har gow)
- Chive and Vegetable Pan-fried Crystal Dumplings
- Hakka-style Stuffed Tofu
The class will be very hands-on, and we'll enjoy everything with Chinese tea at the end!
*This class uses pork, shrimp, and wheat. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate anyone with a shrimp allergy or a gluten sensitivity.
