If you're keen to broaden your culinary horizons, come along to this hands-on cooking class, where you'll learn how to create delicious homemade-style Chinese dumplings completely from scratch!

Not the same as dumplings from Chinatown or other Dim Sum takeaways, these are the real ones that Chinese families enjoy at home, especially in Northern China, the birthplace of the dumplings, where they're part of the staple diet.

During this dumpling class, you'll learn how to make dumplings from expert Chinese cooking teacher Pan. You'll be shown how to make your dishes using authentic methods. With class sizes kept small and intimate, you will get full attention from Pan, who'll be around to make sure all your questions are answered.

This class begins with a short introduction to the world of dumplings and Asian cuisine — you will learn all about the history of dumpling making and how dumplings fit into modern trends of cooking.

During this dumplings class, you will learn how to do:

  • Two types of fillings: 1. pork or turkey with veg (choose from Chinese cabbages, Chinese chives, sweet corn or kale) 2. Courgettes (or Chinese Chives) with eggs.
  • Make dumpling pastry from dough.
  • Three ways to fold dumplings.
  • Cook your dumplings in two different methods.

This class is designed for beginners, and will focus on wrapping, the most important stage. You'll also learn how to knead dough and chop your ingredients by hand for the best results.

At the end of this dumpling cooking class in London, you can sit down and enjoy what you've made, or take it all home for later.

Teaching Chinese cooking classes can be a rewarding and exciting experience for me who is passionate about Chinese cuisine and enjoys sharing their knowledge with others. I would like to teach students the art of Chinese cooking, including the unique flavors, cooking techniques, and ingredients that make this cuisine so popular around the world.

I have a deep understanding and appreciation of Chinese cuisine, as well as experience working with a variety of Chinese ingredients and cooking methods. I should also have excellent communication skills and be able to convey complex cooking concepts in a clear and easy-to-understand manner.

I will likely start with the basics of Chinese cooking, such as how to use a wok and the key ingredients that are essential for Chinese cooking. From there, I can introduce more advanced cooking techniques, such as stir-frying, steaming, and braising.

I also have a good understanding of the different regional styles of Chinese cuisine, such as Sichuan, Cantonese, and Hunanese, so that I can offer a broad range of recipes and techniques to my students.

In addition to teaching cooking techniques and recipes, also be able to provide guidance on where to find authentic Chinese ingredients and how to substitute more readily available ingredients for those that may be harder to find.

Overall, learning Chinese cooking classes can be a fun and rewarding experience that allows I share my passion for Chinese cuisine with others while also learning from my students and expanding my own culinary skills.
