Uncover the secrets to making classic Chinese soup dumplings alongside your team.

In this hands-on team building class, Chef Li will teach your group how to prepare Chinese soup dumplings, or xiao long bao. You'll learn the secrets to enclosing the soup in the dumplings to make this popular dim sum dish. Begin by kneading together the dough from scratch, then rolling out each wrapper into the perfect shape. It's time to fill the dumplings with pork and soup and pleat the dough together to seal them. You'll also prepare a tasty Tofu skin salad, and the classic Sichuan Shredded Pork dish and sweet silver-ear mushroom dessert soup to compliment your meal.

Guests are welcome to bring wine and beer to enjoy during the class.

Our team-building retreat with Chef Li was nothing short of amazing. In her beautiful and private, modern kitchen, Chef Li didn’t just teach us to cook; she inspired us with her culinary passion and expertise. We crafted a delightful array of dishes, from perfect homemade dumplings to exquisite stir-fried pork, a refreshing tofu skin salad, and a heavenly dessert soup. Each recipe was a masterclass in flavor and technique, showcasing Chef Li’s exceptional skill. Her warm, engaging approach made the experience not just educational, but truly joyful. We’re grateful to Chef Li for not only the delicious food but also the wonderful memories and the spirit of teamwork she fostered.
