Cooking Class: Asian Dumplings From Scratch

This hands-on cooking class with Chef Melissa is all about dumplings: you’ll learn how to make the dough, how to fold the wraps and how to perfectly pan-sear your creations. You’ll fold your dumplings into a variety of shapes, including triangles, pleats and roses. To begin, you’ll prepare savory and scrumptious lotus leaf buns stuffed with char siu pork. You’ll then make traditional Chinese-style dumplings (guotie), filled with beef and Chinese chives. After cooking a vegetable wonton soup, you’ll then finish the meal with sweet and creamy boba ice cream — a classic Asian dessert.
