Dumpling Academy cordially invites you, your families, and your friends to attend a fun DIY Dumpling party to celebrate the Manayunk Food Festival and Restaurant Week. While
enjoying Chinese appetizers, everyone will learn a new cooking skill – making dumplings!
At the dumpling making party, you will enjoy a hands-on adventure – make-your-own dumplings. You’ll be guided, taught by Yin, a dumping making expert who will teach you how to fill and shape your own pot stickers and more in an authentic way.
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 on deck, the quicker the dumplings come together, and the faster you’ll get to eating.
