The Humble Dumpling

Vendor sincce 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.

My husband and I attended Angie's workshop and we both loved it. It was a really fun and insightful experience and the dumplings were absolutely delicious!!


23 September 2017 • Lets Make Dumplings Workshop

Our 11 year old grandson wanted a dumpling workshop for his birthday, and I chose Angie's from the long list of those available in Melbourne. I felt that the timing (Sunday), hands-on format and home atmosphere would be suitable for a child. As it turned out, it was a perfect choice. Angie's warm accessible language, the allocation of tasks and her warm and supportive style all added up to a most enjoyable and informative session for everyone in our group. Zach thought it was the best present!

I took my mother to the Humble Dumpling experience and we both enjoyed it immensely gaining a great deal of knowledge and understanding of the dumpling making process. I would certainly recommend it, best to do it with someone special, so you can share the experience.
