Hello there, dumpling lover!  The Age/What's on summed it up best:   "Adults, teenagers, even kindergarten children - there's no one Lou Wong can't teach dumpling-making to..."

Making dumplings as a child with my mother and siblings gave me priceless memories. I teach at Melbourne's best cooking schools (see for more info). You can completely delve into making and eating dumplings because my assistant does the dishes. 

Here's why people love to make dumplings with me and why I've been invited to teach at Melbourne's best cooking schools:

@ieatmelbourne (Rob from Instagram).........I did a dumpling class with's amazing that being away in Hong Kong & Singapore I've come across all of the different dumplings that we made...I wouldn't have appreciated the experience half as much without your wonderful knowledge Lou. If you're a dumpling lover you have to get along to one of her classes! #bucketlist  

Lou is a powerhouse of energy, information and passion!!  Loved the fun-filled & most enjoyable dumpling making workshop. Highly recommend to all foodies!!  - Sharon
