Cooking experience hosted by Marc And Patty

2.5 hours
Chinese
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Chef Patty will regale you with her personal stories, growing up in a traditional Chinese and Taiwanese family, opening her first famiily restaurant, and how the traditions were passed down from her mother and grandmother.

Next, we'll explore Taiwan, through its street food culture, sampling a series of popular street food tapas.

The skillset section starts out with basic rolling of the skins, or wrappers.

Three rounds of dumplings will go over 5-6 shapes, and 3 distinct stuffings: pork and ginger, pork soup dumplings, and vegan. Each round has a break for stuffing the students, too!

The competition is fierce, and there will be awards and trivia prizes throughout the event. If you happen to be the first to mention a "trigger word" in the story section, you will win a coveted "Make Way for Dumplings" tee shirt!

Finally, the closing ceremony, where we encourage students to take home left-overs (if there are any!)

Where you'll be

Dumpling school 001 begins the moment you walk into the lobby of the Windsor Inn. Chef Marco welcomes you to the Windsor Guesthouse., and prepares you for battle. Suit up, it's gonna get messy! Each student is empowered with their own workstation with tools, apron and hat. A light spread of tapas, tea and snacks is waiting on arrival. Chef Patty will be busy preparing the special sauces, and will introduce herself to the class

This was an amazing experience! This felt very much like a party vs just an instructional class. Everyone in attendance couldn't stop raving about how much fun and insightful this was ... not to mention how delicious the dumplings were!

The experience was great. I was expecting to eat a lot of dumplings, and I definitely got A LOT of dumplings. The hosts are great and have a very nice attitude, making the experience very friendly. I'd definitely go back if I visit Boston again!

This class was exactly the right antidote to a rainy February day.  When Chef Marco started in on the dad puns and offered us a choice between a soundtrack of Weird Al or K-pop, I knew it was going to be an entertaining evening.  He taught us technique for rolling out dough and shaping it into dumplings while Chef Patty showed us how to fry or steam them.  Interspersed with storytelling about everyone's weirdest food experiences, we nibbled pork potsticker "pancake" sprinkled with fresh ginger and veggie dumplings in spinach wrappers.  By the end of the evening I was full and happy (and I brought home leftovers for my family to try).
