About the event

Making dumplings from scratch, using simple ingredients, is a great and delicious hands-on activity. You can prepare these in advance and have a stash in the freezer for a convenient meal, although usually after making them, you'll want to cook some up right away! ;) 

In this online class you'll learn:

• How to make dumpling wrappers from scratch

• The flexibility of preparing fillings based on what you have on hand (including leftovers!) and three simple pleats

• The different ways of cooking them up!


1 1/2 cups flour (190g) 

1/2 tsp baking powder, optional

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup (120 ml) just-boiled water

FOR COLORFUL DOUGH, substitute the boiled water with fresh-pressed juices (blue butterfly pea flower tea, carrot juice, beetroot juice), brought to a boil, or add 1 tsp turmeric (yellow), spirulina powder (green)

2 teaspoons vegetable oil (sunflower, safflower, rapeseed/grapeseed)

1 cup (70g) leafy greens (spinach, chard, beet greens, cabbage, kale, or bok chop) 

1 cup (130g) other fillings (butternut squash, carrots, mushrooms, or tofu)

1-2 tablespoons aromatics (chives, fresh ginger, garlic, scallion, onions)

1-2 tablespoons soy sauce, or tamari


Mixing bowl

A small food processor* 

Sharp knife

Measuring cup or scale

Measuring spoons

Kettle or pot to boil water

Rolling pin or a bottle


Tongs or chopsticks

TO FRY: Frying pan with a tight fitting lid

TO STEAM: Steamer basket, optional

TO BOIL: A large pot

*If you don't have a food processor, you can easily (and patiently) finely chop the filling ingredients with a sharp knife.

This virtual class is a fun opportunity for us to cook together and to support the community. I know these are challenging times, so it is available with a 'pay what you are able to' registration. Please email me if you are in need. 

***Proceeds will go the Heart of Dinner (formerly Table to Table NYC) initiative to support the Asian-American narrative to dispel racism and xenophobia by feeding the senior citizens and those in need in Chinatown during the lockdown, as well as supporting restaurants feeding frontline medical workers.***

Spaces are limited on a first-come-first-serve basis with a minimum of 6 attendees. Once confirmed, I'll follow up with an email with the recipe, anything you should prepare in advance, and the Zoom conference link. 

 I truly appreciate your support in any way and can't wait to cook with you!
