LOVE cooking class!!! It’s a fabulous way of spending 3 hours cooking / stuffing face. Who’s excited about MSG-free dim sum?
The teacher was William. He gave us a short intro (5min) on the history of dim sum and how it became a trend setting cuisine in London . Another word for dim sum is ‘yum chai’. ‘Yum chai’ literately translates to ‘drink tea’. This is a Cantonese / Southern China thing. O, the class offers complimentary bottomless Chinese tea. *it does have caffeine
Washing hands was high on the agenda. Hands must be clean, clean, clean. The class featured making everything from scratch – making the pastry from flour and water, plus filling mix from scratch. It was MSG free, wholesome home made style dim sum class 😀 William’s kids love them, so that was why he learnt how to make them. The mix was pork and/or prawns.
Don’t want to have spoiler, so I won’t write too much details here. The agenda was as follows:
- Har Gow 蝦餃 (Prawn Dumplings)
- Chiu Chow Fun Gwor 潮州粉果 (Chiu Chow steamed dumplings)
- Sui Mai 燒賣 (Open top Steamed Pork Dumplings)
Waffled down 20 dim sum later… I felt so inspired after this class (burrrrrp). Will do it again in a heartbeat 😉

What a fun way to spend an afternoon that is totally useful and could make something very creative and those finished yummy food looks so good
Thank you, Sangeetha 😀 xox I thought it was one of those fab value for money sort of spending.
Sure it is
I’ve never taken a cooking class… I want to but I know that I will suck badly at them. Your Sui Mai look profesh! I’m glad hand washing was high on their priority… sometimes I think too deeply about all of the food workers out there and how they handle my food… 😮
???? When eating out, I try not to think about the behind the scene. Cooking classes are fun. The instructors will help. No worries ????
Looks as though it was fun! Will def. look into it. Great pics too!;)
