Today is my daughter's 10th birthday and - pandemic. We wanted to do something safe and special - and we love Shanghai (French Concession!) and soup dumplings, so CiCi's class seemed like it would fit the bill. And it did! She even wore a party hat! The dumplings were fun to make - even if we weren't particularly good at rolling out perfect circles - and they were really delicious! We have enough pork left over to make a lot more dumplings, and we're looking forward to using the recipe over and over again. Loved the videos and stories that CiCi shared, and her daughter is adorable! She also got some Mandarin out of my recalcitrant girls (who are in immersion classes). Thanks, CiCi, for making the birthday special - we'll ring you the next time we're in town, maybe for a real life lesson!

Cici does a great job taking you through the process of making soup dumplings! Her step by step and teaching approach is thorough, warm and very fun! She succeeded in getting us excited to make these regularly and brought us through the importance of this food experience to her culture. We would highly recommend this experience to anyone interested in a culinary and cultural growth experience - thank you, Cici!

Cici is a wonderful teacher and a delightful host. She helped everyone in our group successfully, regardless of dietary restriction or whether they had previously had a soup dumpling or not. Plus the soup dumplings were super delicious. Had a lot of fun and always appreciate the storytelling and cultural tidbits many hosts include. I'll likely book again with friends next time!
