Philly Chinatown (between 9th and 10th St)
MOTHER'S DAY CELEBRATION - Dumpling Making Party(Chinatown)
Five-Spice Philly 2017 Asian Food Festival - Cooking Class
BEST MOTHER'S DAY GIFT!!! Join us for a Family Friendly Fun Dumping Party for Mother's Day Celebration!
We cordially invite your family to attend a fun DIY Dumpling Afternoon/Evening for Mother's Day Celebration right in the heart of Philly’s Chinatown. While tasting other Chinese appetizers, everyone in the families, no matter young or old, will acquire a new cooking skill – learn to make your own dumplings from Yin!
Yin’s story - Growing up, my grandmother’s visits to our home meant one thing: All of the dumplings. She would drop by on a Sunday morning, bags in with ground pork, tofu, vegetables, and packages of dumpling wrappers. My family would devote the entire afternoon to filling and pleating our way through hundreds of dumplings, as my mother would boil and pan-fry batches for us to eat as we worked. We’d freeze what we couldn’t eat, to be pulled out on busy weeknights when none of us felt like cooking. That experience has shaped who I am today. Many years have passed, I still love making dumplings and experimenting on different fillings.
In the family friendly dumplings making party, your family will enjoy a hands-on adventure - make-your-own dumplings. You'll be guided, taught by Yin who is a dumping making expert and learn how to fill and shape your own pot stickers, wontons, and more in an authentic way.
We will prepare dumping sauces in advance. We may either use pre-made wrappers or make wraps on our own right in the party. We will also prepare at least two types of recipes for fillings (meat, e.g. kale and ground pork, and vegetables): each person will make at least five of each dumpling. Participants will be placed to teams on a family basis and we will compete among the teams to see which team will produce the best looking dumplings! We will either cook one recipe at a time and pause to eat between batches, or we’d rather cook them all at the end. Either way, dinner will be delicious!
Dumplings are the singular best food to make for (and with) a crowd: They’re easy, fun, beginner, and cook up super quickly. The more hands you we on deck, the quicker the dumplings come together and the faster we can get eating.
So we will need more of You! Come to Join us for a Dumping Mother’s Day Celebration! It will be a totally fun experience for your entire family.
It was fabulous to hear people's experiences with making dumplings, how they didn't think they could do it and how they practiced and persisted. As someone at our past dumping making party said, "Dumplings are instant smiles."
Bonus – your family will also learn how to use chopsticks in a correct way. A small game will be held to find out who the best chopstick user is. Note: Native Chinese are not eligible for the game.
