Cooking Class: Simple Dim Sum

Tuesday, February 23, 2010
To celebrate the Year of the Tiger, Chef Vanessa Yeung of Aphrodite Cooks held a Dim Sum cooking class at Nella Cucina featuring her Year of the Tiger dumplings.

These cooking classes are tons of fun. Not only do you get to socialize with other food lovers, you also learn new skills and recipes. Oh and did I forget to mention that you get to eat what everyone cooked!

Chef Yeung and her mom Millie taught us all we had to know to make such yummy treats as bison potstickers, stuffed eggplant, vegetarian water dumplings and siu mai.

I love siu mai! Though other kinds of dim sum may be more intricate and tasty, there's just something very comforting about steamed pork and shrimp.

The sweet and savoury pork stuffed pastry was also deeeelish!


The class was very informative. Dim sum turned out to be quite easy to make, with fresh, inexpensive ingredients. We were even talking among ourselves about how easy it would be to pull off making several kinds of dim sum with only slight variations of the same ingredients if you had to throw a dinner party in a pinch.
