Isn’t it time you perfected the art of dumpling making? We all love delicious, juicy dumplings. Join this dumpling masterclass and learn how to make them at home - without stress!

Urban Kitchen presents Lee Chan. A fabulous, fun TV presenter with a passion for Chinese cooking and of course the wonderful world of dumplings.

This class starts with the dough. Lee will demonstrate how easy it is to make your own dumpling dough. Then she will guide you through the steps on how to make 3 fillings: pork, tofu and a non-traditional lamb. But the combinations are endless.

Lee will then demonstrate creative and traditional ways to seal or pleat the dumplings. Of course, you will also learn how to create a variety of dipping sauces, each perfectly matched to the dumpling.

During the class, you will be able to make a range of dumplings and cook them in a number of ways. What do you prefer? Steamed, boiled or fried? This will be a fun class where you will learn real skills that can be used time and time again.

The Urban Kitchen

Vendor since 2015

Urban Kitchen is the culinary hub Melbourne has been waiting for.

Launched in July 2015, Urban Kitchen is the biggest interactive cooking school in the city, offering hands-on classes by top chefs and food industry experts. Owners Georgie and Ben Vile decided to establish Urban Kitchen after a decade building Bay Leaf Catering into Melbourne’s leading boutique caterer.

Centrally located in South Melbourne, the Urban Kitchen has 44 commercial-grade cooking stations in a bright, open space stretching over 250sq/m. No other cooking school in Melbourne gives participants this level of hands-on experience under the guidance of industry experts.

Stunning city views, private dining rooms, a huge outdoor entertaining area and the latest kitchen equipment add to the experience.

Cooking classes are the main game, but Georgie and Ben want Urban Kitchen to become a food knowledge hub, sharing culinary ideas and expertise in the same way Melbourne’s Wheeler Centre supports books and writing. The cutting-edge kitchen space can also be hired for functions and events.

Urban Kitchen also offers an exciting range of corporate team building events, all just minutes from the CBD and walking distance from the South Melbourne Market.
