What you'll learn in this chinese cooking class:

In southern China, dim sum is as much an art form as it is a meal. If you love dim sum and want to try making it at home, come join in our hands-on workshop. This class is for both beginners and cooks who've had some Chinese cooking under their belts. (If you've attended Dim Sum Favorites in the past, we're doing 3 brand new dishes, though Dim Sum Favorites is not a prerequisite.) 

We'll tackle 3 hands-on dishes that you can incorporate into your cooking repertoire:
  • Crystal Shrimp Dumplings (Har gow)
  • Chive and Vegetable Pan-fried Crystal Dumplings
  • Hakka-style Stuffed Tofu 
The class will be very hands-on, and we'll enjoy everything with Chinese tea at the end.

*This class uses pork, shrimp, and wheat. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate anyone with a shrimp allergy or a gluten sensitivity.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

Refund Policy
If you're looking for a refund or class credit, you need to back out of the class a full week before it starts. (No exceptions!) We know it's draconian, but since we aren't charging an arm and a leg and have to buy all our materials in advance, it's kinda hard to deal with last-minute bailings.

We also can't transfer registrations to a future session of the class. Sorry!

Instead of dropping out if you have a schedule conflict, a better idea is to ask around and see if any of your friends want the spot. We can't give you a refund less than a week out, even if there's a wait list for the class. 

Regarding bad weather, we generally only cancel classes if the subway system stops running. If traveling during snowstorms might be an issue for you, please take this into account before registering for a class.

It'd be interesting to cook everything or prepare all parts of the dish not just put things together. But it was really cool and fun. Thanks!

Diana was fun, very clear and encouraged us to experience by ourselves. I would definitely take another class with her.

I highly recommend this class for anyone who has an interest in Asian cooking. The teacher was clearly an expert and was able to answer any/all questions. I wish the class had been slightly more hands on. We were able to construct 2/3 items entirely; had it been possible to cook everything ourselves, this would have been a 5/5.

The Dim Sum Favorites class at Brooklyn Brainery was informative, fun and delicious. Diana Kuan was a good instructor. She provided recipes, and she followed up with a resource list so that we can continue on our own.
