Virtual Cooking Class: Sheng Jian Bao (Pan Fried Soup Dumplings)

Get Cooking

Join our dumpling expert and MasterChef alumna Mai Nguyen, owner of Gourmai Dumplings, for her virtual cooking class on how to make Sheng Jian Bao pan fried pork soup dumplings (not to be confused with Shanghai soup dumplings).  During your online cooking class Mai will take you through making the wrappers and the filling before stuffing, folding, pan-frying and serving your dumplings, sprinkled with green onions and sesame seeds, together with a dipping sauce. Sheng Jian Bao wrappers are made with a yeast dough, so to allow for rising time we’ll take a 30 minute break once our dough is made, then come back to make and cook our dumplings.

Class Fee: $40.00 plus GST (pricing is per device and allows multiple participants to attend using a single device).

Your Fee Includes: A 120 minute cooking class; a recipe pack including info on equipment needed; 7 day access to a recording of your class (you can extend your access to 30 days for an additional $5).
