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.

16 April 2016 • Dumpling Workshop - Vegan & Vegetarian

The dumpling workshop was a fun & informative introduction to the world of dumplings. Our expert teacher, Angie Chong, firstly welcomed us to her charming & well equipped kitchen and talked us through each of the ingredients we were to use & where to source them. After watching her mix the dough & roll individual dumplings whilst providing invaluable tips, the group then shared the jobs in making a delicious selection of vegetarian & vegan dumplings & a delicious dipping sauce for our shared lunch. A very informative, relaxed & fun introduction in to the world of hand made dumplings!

Highly recommend this - Angie was a warm and encouraging demonstrator of the ways of the dumpling! We all had fun making a range of savoury dumplings, and learnt how to prepare wontons too. Left feeling very full - of delicious food and inspiration.
