Celebrate the Year of the Rat by making your own delicious dumplings. In this fun, hands-on workshop you will make a range of dumplings in various wrappers: ginger prawn and pork dumplings in ready-made wonton wrappers, deep fried and then steamed with lashings of ginger infused sauce; savoury and aromatic lotus leaf parcels of sticky rice and morsels of lap cheong (Chinese sausage), chicken, pork, baby shrimp and shiitake; steamed crystal har gow dumplings with prawns, bamboo shoots, soy sauce, sesame oil, Shaoxing rice wine and a little bacon fat, with hand-made translucent wrappers; and, also using hand hand-made translucent wrappers, jade dumplings filled with a lean mince with chives. Enjoy the feast with flavourful dipping sauces. In the spirit of Chinese tradition, Lou will be presenting red envelopes as a gift for an auspicious start to your year of dumpling making.
