This hands-on workshop celebrating the Moon Festival is not to be missed. You will start with readymade wrappers, then learn to make the translucent dough from scratch and the various pleating techniques required to prepare a range of yum cha favourites. Recipes include: deep-fried vegetable wontons; steamed prawn har gow; open topped pork, prawn and shiitake siu mai; and aromatic lotus leaf sticky rice parcels seasoned with marinated chicken and lap cheong sausage. Enjoy the delicious results with dipping sauces and a cloud ear fungus, snow pea and baby corn stir fry. In the spirit of Chinese tradition, Lou will hand out hong bao (red envelopes) for an auspicious start to your dumpling making.
