Meet your Instructor, Andrea Nguyen, and learn more about the dumplings you’ll make in class.
Making Shrimp Wontons (34:13)
Minced shrimp and green onions with seasonings make a delicious filling for wontons. Shape the dumplings into simple triangles or try the more complex nurse’s cap and flower-bud shapes!
Poaching & Frying Wontons (16:24)
Andrea shows you two ways of cooking and serving your wontons. Poach and serve them in gingery chicken broth or deep-fry them and serve with homemade sweet and sour sauce. Delicious!
Pork & Mushroom Siu Mai (32:04)
You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make these little open-topped bundles of deliciousness, a staple of dim sum. Andrea shows how to cut and fill wonton wrappers with a savory pork and shiitake mushroom mixture, then steam them. If you don’t have a bamboo steamer, no worries! You can use a pot of water with a vegetable steamer instead.
Making Dumpling Dough (32:31)
Making dumpling dough from scratch takes just minutes with a food processor. You can add rice flour for an extra-chewy texture or vary the dough’s color with vegetable juices to help distinguish among fillings. Andrea shows you how!
Chinese Pork & Cabbage Dumplings (44:06)
The classic northern Chinese dumpling, or jiaozi, is filled with Napa cabbage, garlic chives, ginger and ground pork. Follow along with Andrea as you assemble this savory filling, roll out your own dumpling wrappers and fold them into half moons to poach.
Japanese Potstickers (Gyoza) (32:34)
Japanaese Potstickers, or gyoza, are a delicious dumpling variation that is steamed and fried in the same pan to develop a golden crust. Learn how to make a pork and shrimp filling for them, as well as a simple soy dipping sauce.
Korean Dumplings (Mandu) (28:51)
Whether you’re a vegan or carnivore, you’ll love the spicy kimchi and tofu filling in the classic Korean mandu. Using the dumpling wrappers you’ve bought or learned to prepare yourself, wrap the tasty filling in a “Korean hug,” steam the mandu and enjoy a feast!
