Soup Dumpling Love

Learn both classic soup dumplings and vegetarian soup dumplings!

Soup dumplings, delicate and bursting with piping hot broth, inspire superfandom. Who hasn't waited an hour in line at Din Tai Fung to get a steamer basket of soup dumplings? Instructor Hsiao-Ching Chou loves soup dumplings so much, she's been to Din Tai Fung locations in three countries. She also has waited in line at the famous Nan Xiang restaurant in Shanghai just to taste soup dumplings at the source. Professional chefs spend months and months learning exacting technique. But this class will introduce home cooks to the basic skills for making soup dumplings.

You’ll get to roll out wrappers, fill and pinch, and steam soup dumplings hands-on, and you’ll enjoy eating the products of your labors.

And because when you make dumplings, there’s usually a little bit of dough leftover, students will also learn how to make scallion pancakes from dough scraps, hands-on.

A special note: Now that Hsiao-Ching’s book, Chinese Soul Food, has hit the shelves, her fans can bring her recipes into their own kitchens. We will have copies of Chinese Soul Food available for sale and Hsiao-Ching will sign your book.
