Master the art of the dumpling with a hands-on masterclass. You will create a variety of dumplings to be boiled, fried and steamed. Learn how to prepare sensational fillings including how to blend by hand and how to correctly prepare the siu mai pork (cannot use mince!), then ‘thrown’ to make them sticky. You’ll learn three different dipping sauces and the techniques of making three different dumpling shapes. Bonus – there’s also tips on freezing and making them into your own freezer-friendly fast food.
- Prepare aromatic Chinese five spice beef wontons served in soup stock with Asian vegetables
- Make Fried Gyoza (vegetarian)
- Make Steamed Siu Mai / open top dumplings with pork and prawn
- Make ‘Moneybags’, aka little parcels served with a sweet chili sauce (filled with turkey, corn and Asian seasoning).
These dishes might sound complicated, but don’t worry – this is a great class for people with children or busy with careers. You’ll feel confident making dumplings that are easy-to-make and freeze well for future meals and snacks.
