This event is SOLD OUT. But we still have tickets to other great winter workshops. Check out our full calendar here.
Come celebrate Chinese New Year and ring in the Year of the Pig with us! In this two-hour hands on cooking class, Chef Connie Sun will show you how to prepare your own mini new years dinner, complete with savory spring rolls, two styles of dumplings, and the traditional almond cookie. A feast of sweet and spicy abundance awaits!
Chinese dumplings are basically edible treasure chests. What do we mean by that? Well it can feel like you've hit the jackpot when you take a bite of a perfectly plump dumpling. The best are made up of a impossibly thin dough shell that encases an ambrosial mixture of seasoned meat and chopped veggies.
You’ll unlock the secrets behind making two varieties of traditional Chinese dumpling—one with a spicy filling and a milder variation. Mastering the perfect folds and gaining all the necessary techniques and tips before grabbing a pair of chopsticks and feasting on your creations. The perfect way to toast the new year!
ABOUT CONNIE SUN:
As soon as Connie Sun could hold a pair of chopsticks, the young foodie was in the kitchen learning traditional Chinese cooking techniques from her grandparents—both of whom were chefs. Later, she found her friends constantly begging for these Chinese staples. Realizing she was on to something, Chef Sun opened her own catering company and brought her delectable dumplings to a wider audience.
