This is a live, interactive, hands-on cooking class held online via Zoom. See our event policies at the bottom of this webpage.

Who doesn’t love dumplings? So many cultures around the world have their own version of these bready, flavor packed parcels. In this class we will make two kinds of mandu (만두), or Korean style dumplings, served two different ways. The steamed dumplings are sumptuous, slightly chewy bundles and will be served in a nourishing miso broth. This is a recipe for days when it is cold outside and you need an extra sweater in the form of food. The pan-fried dumplings have crisp, crunchy exteriors and will be plunged into two sassy sauces. Join Marie as she talks about all sorts of different flavor combinations, ways of folding as well as alternative ways of cooking. Grab your friend, spouse, children or anyone you want to spend some quality time with as you practice and hone your folding techniques.
