We had a wonderful time cooking Asian dumplings with great chef Justin and with a very nice group. We went overtime but the chef was fine with that so we could all finish our dumplings (and they were delicious!).


A culinary journey like no other! Chef Justin's dumpling class was an amazing experience. Learning the art of crafting both pork and vegetarian-filled dumplings was not only enjoyable but also incredibly informative. The techniques shared, from shaping to cooking, were invaluable, and I left with a newfound appreciation for Asian cuisine and the skills to recreate it at home.


Dumpling mastery made fun and accessible! Chef Justin's class was a culinary delight. Creating savory dumplings, learning techniques like shaping and cooking, and gaining insight into ingredient sourcing opened up a world of Asian flavors. The class catered to all skill levels, and I left inspired to create more delicious dumplings in my own kitchen.
