Aside from being a specialist in modern Chinese history, Judy loves to cook and host dinner parties. Her Chinese mother taught her how to make dumplings when she was a kid and she’s been making both traditional and non-traditional dumplings on a weekly basis for decades. Judy has very high standards for delicious, healthy food. You won't be disappointed!

Wonderful opportunity to visit with locals. We spent a lovely morning with Judy and her partner. There was one other guest besides us and she was a lovely addition. It felt like being in a friends kitchen while having great conversation. Dumplings were yummy. Thank you so much!

This was a unique opportunity to meet an experienced person In both the cuisine and the history of Chinese cooking. Judy is a lovely person who shows you step by step how to make dumplings that you can share with others at a dinner party. It was also a wonderful way to meet some of the interesting people who make up real life in a Hawaii not just life in the hotels in Waikiki. Her kitchen is impeccably clean and she is a foodie who can give you tips on any number of topics- kitchen equipment, local restaurants, and farmers markets. It’s a great way to enjoy Hawaii.

Had a great time at Judy's dumpling making class. So fun talking to her, learning her tips and tricks for dumpling making and then eating our final product! :) Highly recommend this experience for both locals and tourists.

I HIGHLY recommend Judy and her dumpling class! The whole class was a fun experience! Judy first asked if we had food allergies or restrictions. She then informed us that the ingredients we used are from local and organic. After we prepared our dumplings, we then ate them and enjoyed a wonderful conversation with Judy. She was very hospitable and welcoming. It was like I was cooking and eating with a member of my own family! Besides the great food, Judy impressed us with her knowledge of cooking and the best restaurants for us to try next! Great food, great company and overall a great experience! Mahalo Judy!!

Judy was great, and her home was beautiful! She was fun to talk to, super patient with our mediocre dumpling-making skills, and the dumplings ended up being delicious.
