The Humble Dumpling

Vendor since 2015

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.

Bought this for my dad for Christmas and was booked out until late feb. after doing the class I can see why! Angie was awesome, she shared her story of how she started the humble dumpling and welcomed us all into her beautiful home. The class itself was so informative and hands on. The dumplings tasted amazing too. Can’t fault this class and am keen to give another class a go as well! 😊 thank you Angie!

I attended the Lets Make Dumplings Workshop as a part of a group of 11 'students' of which I knew no others. Angie made me feel very at ease from the start of the session despite the fact that I did not possess great culinary knowledge or skills. I feel the session was extremely well balanced with explanation/demonstration, hands on preparing and celebration of the results all well catered for. We were strongly encouraged to move around through as many hands on experiences as possible in the time. I feel everyone from novice to well experienced home chef gained a huge amount from the session. I would recommend this to anyone interested in dumpling preparation.
