Team Building Activity: Dumpling-Making Competition

This team building activity comes with a competitive twist and plenty of delicious food. Chef Kelly will teach your group how to expertly make dumplings from scratch, from dough to fillings to folding.

After learning how to make and shape dough and fillings, you'll learn the intricate (and somewhat challenging) art of dumpling folding. Then, everyone will get to split into teams to compete for the tasty win! Each group will use creativity, teamwork and forward-thinking to mix and match fillings like tofu, chicken, pork and veggies to see who comes with the tastiest combinations. In the end, teams will be judged on the uniqueness, appearance and overall taste of their dumplings.


All necessary utensils will be provided by the chef. The venue is required to have access to sinks nearby, tables set-up to prep and garbage containers. Chefs are able to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes in advance.

Class wasn't very good. We weren't taught how to make dumplings. At the beginning of class, we were very quickly shown 10+ variations for folding dumplings. It was very hard to follow, much less recall the variations when it came time to fold. Would have been better to show us one at a time, with time to work through - or give some sort of written instructions to reference. The filling was also premade, so this class was basically a dumpling folding class. There was also one cooker for the entire class, so much of the time was spent waiting in line. I didn't learn anything, and the class wasn't fun. Save your time and money and skip.

The Asian dumpling class was super fun. I am confident I could make these at home now. It will be a showstopper for a party.
