It's hard to imagine a more perfect food than Chinese dumplings. In fact, during the time that I was living over there, right in the middle of nowhere, I don't think I would have survived so long without them.
Even to this day I crave them, something that I've never been able to say about other Chinese dishes. Except perhaps a big bit of Crispy Duck.
They're an absolute nightmare to make yourself though; the dough is difficult and they're fiddly as f**k - meaning you're more likely to just buy a bag of frozen ones from the Chinese supermarket than make your own. But, like most things, making them at home is SO MUCH better.
Well, this week you can learn how to do it all with this Virtual Dumpling Making Masterclass on Friday 29th May, as culinary superstars Dinner Ladies take you through all the steps.
To start, you'll make Pork and Chive Dumplings with a Shiitake Tofu Mushroom alternative for vegans. For the main course, you'll be guided through how to make Spicy Aubergine stuffed with Pork and Prawn, the Dinner Ladies' take on a Shanghai classic.
It's £8 per device to join, and you can do that below...
