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.

Great fun, especially with a group of friends.


13 April 2019 • Wonderful Wonton Workshop

Hi Angie, Thank you for a fabulous day. It was such a beautiful way to celebrate a dear friend’s Birthday with such an amazing host, knowledgeable foodie and warm and welcoming soul as yourself. It was such a treat to learn some of the history of Chinese Australian Cuisine and wonderful to learn the art of folding and rolling wonton. And so lovely to finish by sharing the food we prepared, coming together to feast not only on scrumptious food, but revel in great company and lively conversation. A brilliant way to spend the day enriching the tastebuds and the soul. Kindest Regards, Kylee, Rose, Mina
