Join Chef Wei for a fun lesson in homemade Shanghai-style dim sum.
In this interactive cooking class, Chef Wei will guide you with time-honored techniques as you prepare authentic dumplings from scratch. Learn how to make each element of the dumpling and fold each unique style.
Begin with classic pork and vegetable potstickers before practicing the art of making soup dumplings filled with pork and a savory broth. Stir fried meat and vegetables are wrapped in a homemade wonton for Shanghai-style egg rolls. For a refreshing treat, Chef Wei will teach you how to make boba pearls for homemade boba tea.
Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.
Chef Wei was an excellent teacher! The class was a unique experience that makes you feel at home all while learning from a highly skilled and sweet chef. The class was the perfect choice for date night for my wife and I, we will definitely be doing this again!

It was not what I was expecting. I thought it would be an actual cooking class where you get to cook. We actually didn’t do any cooking. She demonstrated most of the dishes like a private chef. If I knew it would be like that I would have not reserved it. Plus I put in the notes that one person does not eat pork. She decided to use beef which is something I don’t really eat often. I mainly eat chicken. The one thing I did not like is that when she would use chopsticks to mix the pork with the other ingredients she used the same chopsticks to mix the beef with the other ingredients. I had explained before we started that pork makes me sick. She had almost mixed in gelatin which contained pork feet with the beef until I pointed it out. Today my stomach has been upset. I am cautious with what I eat since I have a sensitive stomach. I doubt I will be doing this again.

Had a great experience! Chef Wei makes all her dough from scratch and makes cooking chinese food as simple as making a PBJ sandwich! She is patient and friendly, and will supply everything you need for the experience!

Chef Wei was WONDERFUL! When the family of 4 of us arrived Chef had everything laid out for us and gave an overview of what we'd be doing. She was very informative as we asked questions about her technique in the few things that she had prepped for us before hand. Throughout the process we were all hands on to make the recipe, each getting to try out each piece of the process. What truly set this experience apart was the follow up with some recommendations locally for ingredient shopping and the recipe straight to our email. We can't wait to all get together again so we can use the skills we learned. Such a fun class, thank you!!
