We've even received interview requests from four TV stations - ABC, Fox, NBC, and PHL 17 - about our classes! However, due to the limited size of our classes, we have had to turn away some guests. To ensure you secure a spot this time, be sure to sign up early!

About this event

2023 Mother's Day/Father's Day Celebration

We are extremely excited to bring the Mother's Day/Father's Day Hand Made Dumpling Event back to Philadelphia this year! We cordially invite you, your moms and dads, your grandmothers and grandfathers and your friends to attend a fun DIY Dumpling + fried chocolate wontons cooking experience. We will make rose shaped dumplings and edamame too, so everyone will learn new cooking skills!

Come learn to make your own dumplings at the Dumpling Academy - Home of the Dumpling Queen - at our new location in Center City, Philadelphia! Wheel chair accessible and easy parking!

-Parking lot behind the building, $10/day on Saturdays and Sundays, free street parking on Sundays!

At this dumpling making party, you will enjoy a hands-on adventure: make-your-own dumplings! You'll be guided and taught by Yin, a dumping making expert who will teach you how to fill and shape your own pot stickers in a candidly authentic way.

A quick overview:

-First, we will learn how to prepare the dumpling filling. Then, with either pre-made wrappers or wrappers we made ourselves, we will then learn the proper ways to cook dumplings; Everyone will learn well-rounded dumpling making skills. Finally, we will feast together on the dumplings we made - delicious!

Dumplings are the singular best food to make for (and with) a crowd: They’re easy, fun, beginner-friendly, and cook super quickly. The more hands we have on deck, the quicker the dumplings come together and the faster we can get to eating.

Bonus - You will sample assorted Chinese dim sum/snacks at your arrival!

Come join us for a sincere and splendidly-authentic experience, unique for you and your family!
