What you'll do

I'll teach you how to make traditional handmade wrappers, how to roll them, and how to make delicious traditional northern-style dumplings. You'll learn how to prepare the minced pork—a family secret from my mom—and use traditional Chinese spices to season the pork filling. For the vegetarian filling I'll use Chinese chives, eggs, and dried mushroom. This filling is a totally traditional Chinese dumpling filling, too. Then I'll show you how to boil and fry them. Once we've finished, we'll taste them all and discuss which filling is your favorite and which cooking method you prefer—boil or fry. Of course I'll show you how to make my special dipping sauce with garlic and soy sauce.
