It can be intimidating to participate in a cooking class, particularly if you are learning a technique that is unfamiliar. In the No Frills Dumpling Class, Chef Patty Chan and Chef Marco make their participants feel immediately at home by beginning the session with a simple introduction. “The first thing we ask them is to tell a story,” Chef Marco explains. “And that’s the hardest part for most people. It’s not the dumpling making but telling a story about their experience with food. Food is a gathering point…. We try to express how this is going to be a story in their book.”
Chef Patty Chan seeks to impart her passion for dumpling cooking upon each and every one of the class participants. She honors her family’s heritage and her own personal memories by carefully yet informally instructing students in the art of dumpling making. Here you will learn everything you need to know about dumpling making, from constructing the skin to creating the fillings to learning the five traditional folding and crimping techniques!
