What you'll do

Started 1st class on June 13th, 2020 =)

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 the 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.

My daughters and I really enjoyed this experience. The process was fun and easy to follow. We enjoyed it very much. My 11-year old daughter asked me to find another class from Virginia. The egg tarts were delicious and Virginia was very personable!

Virginia was absolutely superb, she was warm, welcoming, and super flexible as we ran into technical troubles. She was very clearly knowledgable and helped us trouble shoot all of our issues on the fly. This was a phenomenal team build event, especially since our team is distributed and hasn't been able to get together because of covid for a long time now

I had such a fun time baking the egg tarts! They were really delish. Virginia expertly walked us through the recipe steps and they came out perfectly. Throughout the experience she shared unique stories and taught us interesting facts. Afterwards I watched her YouTube vids, which are great! I highly recommend this experience!

We really enjoyed our experience with Virginia. She taught a great recipe, kept us very engaged and really made it a lot of fun. Top that off with the end result of the best Egg Tarts I've ever had. The crust was awesome. I've always peeled some of the crust off at Dim Sum restaurants here in California. This crust was so good my Daughter and I were trying to think of other tarts we could bake with it.

Virginia was such a lovely host. She was super friendly, engaged well and accommodated accordingly. Even though it was just myself on the call, she made the tarts along with me, provided time and guidance when needed along with clear instructions, was super interactive and engaging with question asking, prompts and I thought the addition of background history and Cantonese teaching was a lovely added touch to make the experience more fun and interesting. The tarts taste amazing (as well as the tea) so I will definitely be making it again and I hope to engage in more experiences that Virginia provides. Thankyou for the session!
