What you'll do

Soup dumplings (Xiaolongbao) are a famous Shanghai-style specialty! What makes them different is that there is soup INSIDE! Many people wonder: just how does the soup get inside the dumplings? Why is the skin super thin but chewy? Nowadays soup dumplings are popular all over the world, but do you know who invented soup dumplings? How many different kinds of dumplings are there in China? Come and join my soup dumpling experience, where I will teach you to make authentic soup dumplings by hand. As we work, I will share with you the history of different kinds of dumplings. Whether you book this experience for Family reunion, Date night or Team building, I will lead you on a pleasant dumpling journey. After the class, everyone can be a Soup Dumpling Master!

You’ll learn how to knead a dough, how to roll wrappers and how to pinch a dumpling by your hands! Of cause I’ll even reveal how the soup gets wrapped up inside the dumpling! You will also learn how to make a yummy dipping sauce that complements the dumplings.

Finally, we will enjoy our handmade xiǎolóngbāo together. You will also get to take home an easy-to-follow recipe so you can recreate the cooking experience in your own kitchen.

This experience will live broadcast on zoom, you will get all the information and details after your booking.

I have always tried to make the soup dumpling on my own. Cici's recipe and instruction on repairing the filling was the last key for making a true soup dumpling

I really enjoyed cooking soup dumplings with Cici. She showed me every detail and wait till finish each steps. I enjoyed watching videos of other kind of dumplings and butchers in China. Thank you, Cici.

Cici was so lovely! We had a great time learning how to make dumplings from scratch. She weaves in some storytelling, dumpling history and made a great effort to get to us! This would be a great class to do again with friends!

I bought this experience for my husband for Father’s Day. He really enjoyed the experience and made the most delicious and well shaped dumplings, I couldn’t believe how great they were.

Great class! I had never tried soup dumplings, let alone made them, but they were delicious! Cici did a fantastic job explaining how to prepare the filling and demonstrating how to shape the dumplings. She has such a lovely personality and was a joy to talk to. I truly enjoyed this experience!
