For me, cooking has always been about the sharing of food. It’s about the anticipation of sitting down together and having quality time to talk and share a meal.

I am the daughter of Chinese cooking legend Elizabeth Chong and granddaughter to pioneering and dim-sim inventor William Wing Young.  In so many ways I have always been surrounded by food.  I went on to study  Horticulture but found myself always wanting to plant veggies in peoples front gardens.  Later, I  designed Victoria’s first fully accredited  Asian Cookery course at William Angliss Institute  of TAFE where I taught for nearly 20yrs.

Today, my  business The Humble Dumpling, is a return to my roots and family traditions. I grew up surrounded by aunties, uncles, grandparents and many many cousins who gathered every Sunday to make dumplings.   I have such fond memories of those days and hope that my workshops and events will go some of the way towards sharing my wonderfully rich food culture.

08 May 2018 • Lets Make Dumplings Workshop

Thank you Angie for being so welcoming and introducing me to The Humble Dumpling. I had such a fantastic day not only learning how to make delicious dumplings but all about their history too. And might I say they tasted delicious - no more buying the frozen kind. I highly recommend this cooking class to all cooks.

My daughter and I attended the Asian Streetfood workshop at Angie's gorgeous home. This is a well structured workshop with lots of hands-on learning and cooking, from spring onion cake, satay, prawn spring rolls, pork buns and my fave, caramelised pork belly in steamed Bao buns with Asian pickled veg. Angie is a warm and friendly host who also manages to keep everyone on track so we can all sit at a shared table and enjoy the fruits of our labour. Very highly recommended! Vicki F.
