About your host, Paula: "My father immigrated here in the 1960's and opened 2 restaurants. As is customary with Chinese families, I worked part-time at the restaurant and started off helping out in the kitchen which is where I wrapped my first dumpling, and I've never stopped making dumplings since!"

What to expect
An amazing experience! Paula was very welcoming, knowledgeable and made some beautiful dumplings! Would highly recommend.
We had a splendid experience at Paula's cooking class. She made us feel most welcome and was attentive and hospitable.
Our session was a great blend of learning practical skills as well as information on the culture and history of Dim Sum (as well as Chinese cooking in general). Our class was intimate but this enabled us to converse a lot with Paula and to get to know the other classmates as well.
Overall, very enjoyable and lots and lots of tasty food to eat!
Super duper. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon with Paula and I plan to try and make the dumplings again on my own!
Really great class! I would definitely recommend it if you have fast and nimble fingers otherwise it could take a while! :)
