What you'll do

You'll be greeted with tea, coffee and home brewed refreshing drinks as you get acquainted with me. I'll provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare the dough & wrapper for the dumplings. More importantly, we will wrap up the dumplings together - it's quite a skill but with practice, everyone could master it. Depending on the diet requirement, we can have one meat stuffing (pork, beef or chicken) and/or vegetarian style stuffing. The finished dumplings will be either steamed or pan-friend depending on your preference. After being fed well, you are more than welcome to hang around to ask me any questions you have related to the art of dumpling making.

I've been cooking for family and friends all my adult life and one food that everyone enjoys is my dumplings. Growing up in Northern China, dumplings have significant cultural reference for me. Preparing and eating dumplings together with my guests will be a form of communication, celebration, and social exchange.

What a great experience from Changmin! We loved learning how to make and enjoyed eating the dumplings. Changmin puts a lot of effort in making sure guests are comfortable and well fed. We left with full bellies and will definitely make our own dumplings with the lessons we’ve learnt

Changmin - it is hard to sum you up in a few words! An energetic, loquacious & generous host who shared her wealth of knowledge and ensured that the food and stores flowed freely for the few hours that we were in her company. We left well fed and smiling! She gave us clear instructions on how to make the dumplings and gave constructive feedback so we could improve. Thank you Changmin it was a great class!

Changmin is a great host. She enjoys meeting new people and you can tell she has a passion for cooking. If you combine these two together you have a great 2hrs experience of learning how to make dumplings, all in the comfort of her own place with beautiful ocean views. It also happened to be my birthday on the day to which she promptly responded by putting a candle on the cake she baked and an impromptu happy birthday sing along with the rest of the group. After we left her place, everyone from our group of 6, we all agreed it was such a great experience worth more than what we actually paid for! You won’t be leaving Changmin’s place hungry that’s for sure. Oh and did I mention I learned how to make dumplings?! Well done Changmin, I can’t recommend this experience highly enough

We really enjoyed learning how to make dumplings and they tasted delicious. Changmin was a great hostess and we look forward to doing our homework of making our own dumplings at home.

My partner and I had a lovely experience learning dumplings with Changmin. It certainly exceeded our expectations, from the homemade kombucha, nuts, banana cake... and of course, the dumplings! She truly made everyone feel so welcome in her home, constantly attending to us... She answered all our questions with regards to making dumplings, and even making our own wraps with flour. At the end of the session, it felt like we were learning from a friend. Thank you Changmin, we'll be back!
