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.

What a delight making dumplings with lovely Ange online this Sunday. I really enjoyed the experience, learned lots - about pastry, pleating and dumpling frying and steaming it was fun and they came out quite well considering it was a first go at everything. I made the rest of the batch with my partner afterwards and we had heaps of dumpling deliciousness. Thanks Ange for your encouragement and great tips. Feel So lucky to be able to do this from my NZ kitchen!

It was a wonderful cooking experience, our daughter has a mild disability and Angie was very understanding and explained every step along the way. The story that Angie tells about her heritage and her love of cooking was lovely to hear and we neve felt rushed. The tasting of home made dumplings was even better, way better than we thought, thanks Angie - we had a great family experience.

Really enjoyed this class. Ingredients were easy to find, and the class was a good pace to not feel rushed, and I was cooking by myself. Angie the teacher was going step by step and checked in with everyone if we had any issues! Highly recommend
