Spend an afternoon with us learning how to make Chinese dumplings (guo tie). We’ll start with a demonstration on how to make the dough for the dumpling wrappers. Next, we’ll show you how to make our own pork & chive filling and Chinese mushroom, tofu & chive filling. Then, you’ll see how the individual wrappers are rolled out and filled, before you have a go yourself at rolling out and filling your own dumplings.
We’ll show you two ways to cook the dumplings – either traditionally boiled or turned into potstickers; and the different sauces and accompaniments usually served with them.
The demonstration and workshop will be followed by the traditional Malaysian Chinese New Year “Prosperity Toss”. This is a colourful salad known as Yee Sang Lou Hei which means “raw fish raising good fortune”. Yee Sang also sounds like the words for abundance in Chinese. All the ingredients have their own significance; encouraging good fortune and relationships into your year. The higher you toss the ingredients, the better!
We will all then partake in the salad and have some dumplings, so we can socialise and enjoy the food together.
You will be able to take home the dumplings you make and a recipe card.
Note: Children must be accompanied by an adult. N.B. The Prosperity Toss contains seafood and peanuts. Please let us know if you have any allergies.
