What you'll do
We will make the signature Ding Tai Fung style soup dumplings from scratch. From scratch means, scratch from FLOUR!!

We will also make Chinese black fungus salad together as our side dishes. As we enjoy our delicious meal, I will explain the types of fungi commonly used in Chinese food and how can you can use these nutritious sources of antioxidants in your daily meals. I will also share some traditional Chinese ingredients that we use and let you have a taste of it. Afterwards, we will finish our meal with a traditional comforting Hong Kong egg custard dessert (one of my favorite dish from Hong Kong)

Drinks Chinese tea with dates or lemon tea
15 years of home cooking experience, born and raised in Hong Kong, recently moved to SF. I have been hosting cooking classes for more than 5 years, my love of food started when I was a kid helping my dad cook in the kitchen. Ever since, I have been learning from differet professional chefs (and Dad) and creating recipes to spread joy through food. While I have had cooking experience in a wide range of cuisines, including being a cook at an Italian cafe, I find myself always drawn back to the comfort of Chinese food, which I hope to share with you.
