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.

I bought a dumpling workshop for my best friend and decided to accompany her. I loved the fact that, unlike many cooking classes, this one was being held in the instructor's home. This immediately felt more warm and inviting and put me at ease. Angie was a wonderful host and made me feel very comfortable in her home. Her kitchen was very well set up and the format of the workshop meant that we all got to experience the important steps of creating dumplings. After the workshop we got to sit down and enjoy our hard work with a yummy lunch. I would highly recommend this workshop for anyone who loves dumplings!
