I had such a fun time with Cici, learning how to prepare soup dumplings. It was a pleasure to learn about her, her home, and how to get the dumplings just right. :-) My friend and I weren’t 100% prepared with ingredients, and Cici made it so easy for us to participate with modifications. Thank you, Cici!

I gave this experience to my husband as a holiday present as we both love soup dumplings and would spend too much keeping the habit alive. This class was great. I'm a beginner in the kitchen and he's a pro and we both had a great time. The best part is, you end up with soup dumplings! Cici, the instructor was awesome. Super patient, provided tons of pro tips, and gave us a fun window into her world. Would absolutely recommend this class. It's a great activity!!

Cici was an absolute delight, so patient with us students. She made Chinese history and culture come to life by sharing videos of her local pork market and photos of Chinese New Year gatherings. She's timed the class so well, and I'd definitely recommend her class to others who want to learn this magical art.

Cici is an amazing chef and host, I can't understate how lovely this experience was. From the cultural anecdotes like shopping and eating in Shanghai to the clever dual screens to show her hands and face in the zoom - it was flawless. We had a huge group yet she managed to keep everyone on pace and her suggestions after looking at our dumplings at its various stages were so helpful. As a dumpling connoisseur, these came out as good as anyI have tasted. My friends all messaged me after with great gratitude for the experience and she even followed up with additional content and recipes for our next culinary adventure. I recommend Cici 100% and wouldn't doubt that I do this again just to have a laugh with her again.
