What you'll do

Chef Patty will regale you with her personal stories, growing up in a traditional Chinese and Taiwanese family, opening her first famiily restaurant, and how the traditions were passed down from her mother and grandmother.

Next, we'll explore Taiwan, through its street food culture, sampling a series of popular street food tapas.

The skillset section starts out with basic rolling of the skins, or wrappers.

Three rounds of dumplings will go over 5-6 shapes, and 3 distinct stuffings: pork and ginger, pork soup dumplings, and vegan. Each round has a break for stuffing the students, too!

The competition is fierce, and there will be awards and trivia prizes throughout the event. If you happen to be the first to mention a "trigger word" in the story section, you will win a coveted "Make Way for Dumplings" tee shirt!

Finally, the closing ceremony, where we encourage students to take home left-overs (if there are any!)
Other things to note
If you have gluten sensitivity, we do not offer gluten free options, at this time. Currently we offer the class with pork filling and vegetarian filling. Custom fillings are possible for lg groups.

If you would like to bring a bottle of wine or some beer, it is BYO.

Where you'll be

Dumpling school 001 begins the moment you walk into the lobby of the Windsor Inn. Chef Marco welcomes you to the Windsor Guesthouse., and prepares you for battle. Suit up, it's gonna get messy! Each student is empowered with their own workstation with tools, apron and hat. A light spread of tapas, tea and snacks is waiting on arrival. Chef Patty will be busy preparing the special sauces, and will introduce herself to the class

This was so much fun! Marc and Patty have an amazing chemistry which radiates. Learning about their history while learning about dumplings will be a very memorable experience. The dumplings we made were delicious and hands down more than enough to fill you up. We all walked out happy & full!

Chef Marc and Patty were so much fun! From the moment we walked in we were greeted with jokes and excitement. They made us feel extremely welcome. This experience was the definition of Funtertainment! If you see people walking around the area with huge smiles on their faces, they must've just come from this experience. If you're looking for a great time with even better food this is definitely the place to go. I highly recommend booking this experience because it was the highlight of our trip!

Marc was an awesome host! He accommodated our preference for vegetarian dumplings. He is an awesome storyteller and explained a lot about his life, Boston and Dumplings! We tried different dumpling folding styles and he patiently helped us to try it out ourselves. We got to eat a lot of dumplings, green tea and had fun :) definitely recommend this for a family get together or a fun evening for couples or friends.
