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 (pork) and vegetarian/vegan (spinach and tofu) fillings will be available to work with. We'll cook and eat all of our wontons and dumplings to enjoy with wine at the end of class.
