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.

I had a fabulous time. Learning to make and roll the dough and then the pleating was great fun. And of course, the dumplings tasted so much better than what I've tasted in restaurants.

Angie was a great instructor. Rather, it was more like learning from a friend, at a friend's house. She was full of stories and tips. The dumpling range will not disapppint. The dipping sauce was sensational. We were consuming it by the spoonful. Seriously! The workshop setting is a visual treat and the dumplings a treat for the belly. Oh so fantastic!
