This was so much fun and dumplings are so easy to make. I can’t wait to make more at home and freeze a big batch of them.

Chef Li was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. My partner is vegetarian and chef Li personally made a recipe just for her. She goes above and beyond for her students. The dumplings were delectable. My partner and I had a wonderful time, thanks chef Li!
