This is the essential introduction to making dumplings at home. Perfect for busy people as these dumplings can be easily made at home and freeze well.  Just minutes to cook straight from the freezer,  Lou Wong will show you how to transform the humble wonton wrapper into three different shaped dumplings, with three different fillings that are then cooked by boiling or steaming or deep-frying. WONTONS filled with beef infused with Chinese 5 spice, served with a lashing of chili sauce, or with the option of a peanut butter chili sauce; SIU MAI, a classic yum cha dumpling of pork and prawn that is open-topped and steamed; WONTON WINGS, a deep fried dumpling that is paired with a sweet chili dipping sauce. Enjoy the feast with a fresh Asian slaw tossed in ginger, lime and sesame dressing.

Not only did I learn how to make several different types of dumplings but I had fun doing so! The class was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone. It was a combination of hands on experiences as well as observing the teacher.
