What you'll learn in this dumpling class:

Discover the flavor-packed world of dumplings!

Master the basics of dumpling wrapping in different shapes including triangular, wonton and pleated crescent. You’ll get a chance to work with high-quality store-bought dumpling wrappers. You’ll also get to practice your knife skills and learn how to make your own fillings (vegetarian options are available). Find out about our favorite resources in NYC for sourcing ingredients and basic equipment for dumpling making at home.

No experience is required! We provide all the equipment and ingredients, which are easy to find at local markets if you don’t already have them in your home kitchen. Our events are casual and meant to be fun and instructive, not hardcore. This class is designed to be just as fun for the cooking enthusiast who wants to be a part of every step as it is for the first-timer who’s happier observing and assisting (or taste testing). You will work with other students in groups of 2-4. 

Please arrive 15 minutes early to check in, especially if you’re part of a large group. Drinks are available for purchase from the venue and are NOT included in the ticket price. Outside drinks are not allowed. 

We use ingredients that are easy to find at local markets and equipment available in every home kitchen!

Question from Anonymous
Hi I’m visiting from the UK and would be really interested in attending one of the classes (particularly the dumplings class on Sunday 25th). However I am only 19. Is this a problem? I see that there is an age restriction to over 21 but I was wondering why this is and if there’s anyway it could be overcome? Thanks in advance. Very best regards.

My husband and I chose this class as an alternative to our typical dinner-out date night, and I'm so glad we did. We really enjoyed the class and learning 6 different techniques for making dumplings. Cynthia is amazing - energetic and knowledgable - she kept the entire group focused and excited the entire class. The class is held in a group setting, where you sit in groups os 4-6, and share the chopping and mixing duties. Then, Cynthia walks the group through the dumpling shapes and techniques with both square and round wrappers. The dumplings themselves were delicious - we made vegetarian and chicken varieties and are excited to make these at home. The class is held in a hotel restaurant. There is a bar in the room where you can purchase drinks. This class is a lot of fun and a terrific value. Highly recommend for a fun night out!
