What you'll do

Get ready for a Hong Kong (HK) partay! Grab your funkiest aprons & LET'S GET BAKING!

If you're bored out of your minds at home & you're looking for a FUN, YUMMY, and EDUCATIONAL activity to do with your kids or household, this is it. I'll entertain the heck out of you for 1.5 hours, and you'll get your own batch of warm, flaky, eggy, sweet, & SCRUMPTIOUS EGG TARTS after. What's not to like ;)

This is also a great activity for virtual corporate TEAM BUILDING to build rapport with your team and colleagues OR for RECONNECTING with your friends and family spread all across the globe.

In between all the baking, we will LEARN basic Cantonese phrases that are super easy to remember. You'll also get to HEAR about the history of egg tarts and its origin story. DISCOVER how a plump British foodie made HK style egg tarts famous all across the world, making one bakery go from selling hundreds to thousands of egg tarts a day.

Obviously all the chatting will make us thirsty, so we will also be recreating HK's most iconic milk tea. You'll also have a giggle to why there's a weird (think extremely weird) secret ingredient to HK milk tea.

You'll be able to meet and make friends from all different walks of life, all over the world & as we're munching on egg tarts, we can chat away on all things HK related.

Hello! I'm Virginia & I'm a huge FOODIE based out of Hong Kong. I was a top Airbnb experience host running food tours & even have my own tour company called Humid with a Chance of Fishballs Tours - YouTube us ;)

I was born in Canada to Hong Kong-born parents & moved here 7 years ago in pursuit of a fancy Human Resources job, but ventured into tourism about 3 years ago and I'm loving it. I love meeting new people, eating good food, bringing people all around the world together over our shared love for food =)

Get ready to have an awesome time - baking, eating, drinking tea, & learning Cantonese and culture with me!

P.S. Yes, I'm that girl.... You may recognize me from Netflix's Restaurants on the Edge as the street food expert in Hong Kong or for bringing YouTubers like Strictly Dumpling & Best Ever Food Review Show around town.

This was a great experience! A delicious recipe and I love the cultural insights that Virgnia provides. She takes time to share stories. Higly recommended! I am doing her beverage on a regular basis. Delicious!

Such a fun and informative host who gets you talking and learning about each other and some Cantonese. It was a lot of fun and she showed us how to bake in such an easy manner that it never felt overwhelming and they all turned out excellent. Great recipe as well and already thinking about making again.

This is my second time taking the class because we love egg tarts and I wanted my 11yo daughter to try it. Easy to follow and Virginia is very patient. We loved it!!

My friend and I enjoyed Hong Kong Eggtarw class by Virginia with 2 more participants from the U.S. Virginia introduced us her original recipe, and I really felt the deliciousness of the yolk! Also, she taught us history of HK Eggtart and some Cantonese and that was very intriguing. Now I still can't visit HK, but I was glad I could feel Hong Kong through her class.

Vivian shared history and culture about how egg tarts came about and made the class personally special. She taught some Cantonese and can troubleshoot recipe on the fly.
