Chinese Cooking Classes

Overview

Eating Chinese often involves indulging in a veritable feast of starters. In fact sometimes the entire meal is made up from selections of delicious nibbles and delicacies.

When visiting a Chinese family, the first thing they will do is offer you a bite to eat.  This show of both care and courtesy often finds its form in the provision of a selection of Dim Sum, a term that when translated literally into English means “little touch of heart”, quite befitting!

Dim sum consists of a variety of dumplings, steamed dishes and other goodies. The methods behind these are often intricate and delicate processes involving rolling and folding parcels made from gluttonous rice papers and doughs.

In this class you’ll learn how to prepare, fold and cook a tasty dim sum favourite – pork and chive dumplings – along with a variety of other dishes. You’ll also learn to make mouth-watering dishes such as chicken satay, prawn toasts, chicken wonton and honey soy wings.

Why visit a Chinese restaurant when you can make such deliciousness yourself?!  We will teach you how to create amazingly fresh, home-made recipes that will elevate your hosting skills forever.
