What you'll do

Cook a traditional Chinese dish in a private class

I'll teach you how to make traditional handmade wrappers, how to roll them, and how to make delicious traditional northern-style dumplings. You'll learn how to prepare the minced pork—a family secret from my mom—and use traditional Chinese spices to season the pork filling. For the vegetarian filling I'll use Chinese chives, eggs, and dried mushroom. This filling is a totally traditional Chinese dumpling filling, too. Then I'll show you how to boil and fry them. Once we've finished, we'll taste them all and discuss which filling is your favorite and which cooking method you prefer—boil or fry. Of course I'll show you how to make my special dipping sauce with garlic and soy sauce.

2019년 9월 둘째 주에 친구들과 함께 참여하였고, 한문이 서툴러 고덕지도를 찾아 겨우 방문하였다. Cici가 문 앞에 나와서 기다려주었고 다른 게스트들과도 잘 어울릴 수 있었다. 중국어를 못해서 영어로 대화하였는데 즐거웠고 특히 Dumpling 만드는 과정이 재미있었다. 맛도 좋았고 친구들과 잊지 못할 추억이 되었다. 우리가 수다를 떠느라 한국말을 너무 많이 사용하고 정신이 없었던 것 같은데 그래도 전반적으로 분위기가 좋았다.

I had a great experience. I got lost on the subway and Cici personally helped me to get to the right place. I was on my own, and we still had the full hours of cooking class, and even went beyond that and studied some chinese language. She really knew what she was doing, and the dumplings tasted very good! An experience you should definitely try!!
