Traditional Chinese dumplings with a gourmet twist! We’ll learn how to make authentic Chinese dumplings with Judy, from Historical Chinatown Tours.

First, Judy will give you a 45-min sneak peak of historical Chinatown and then we'll spend 2 hrs learning how to prep, make, and eat dumplings.

This will be a hands-on experience. We'll discuss what makes a good filling, prep the ingredients, fold the wrappers, cook the dumplings, and we’ll eat them. By the end of the 3-hour experience, you’ll be an expert!

Aside from being a specialist in modern Chinese history, Judy loves to cook and host dinner parties. Her Chinese mother taught her how to make dumplings when she was a kid and she’s been making both traditional and non-traditional dumplings on a weekly basis for decades. Judy has very high standards for delicious, healthy food. You won't be disappointed!

This experience was absolutely incredible! Judy's personal connection and knowledge of historical Chinatown make the experience feel extra special, and her technique for making and folding dumplings us foolproof. Judy truly is the dumpling master.

Such a fun and educational evening. Not only do you get to learn how to make dumplings, Judy does an incredible job teaching you the important history of Vancouver's China Town from her own unique perspective of the area and her own personal family history.

This class was such a unique addition to our mini holiday in Vancouver! It was super cool to learn the history of China town, Judy is a fantastic story teller that was friendly and entertaining. We learned a new skill, and left with our bellies full! Lots of great conversation, an overall great experience that I would recommend to anyone! Judy even reached out ahead of time and accommodated the ingredients for our unique dietary needs.

The whole family had a great time learning about the history of the area and perfecting (haha) the art of dumpling making. We reallt enjoyed the time with Judy and Steven , each other and our new Swiss friends.

We loved our Chinatown tour and a dumpling making class! Judy is great and knowledgeable host and we learned a lot about the history of the Chinatown in Vancouver but also about the history and culture of Chinese people all over the world. I would definitely recommend Judy’s tour!
