This Funzing Experience:
Step into the heart of Beijing, in Ally's home kitchen in Shoreditch as she leads you into the most authentic and unique Chinese cooking experience. 

In Chinese Culture, cooking is both social and fun! So she invites you in to learn the art of dumpling making, whilst both having fun and learning all about her culture. 

Ally is a Chinese native and has an insatiable passion for food and cooking. Usually the whole family spends half a day making dumplings together. There's was no TV in the background, just everybody talking, laughing and making the most delicious food. Ally wants to share this very beautiful experience of cooking and sharing food with more people!

Upon arrival you will be greeted with a refreshing drink and be shown quickly how to make dumplings before spending the rest of the afternoon practicing and making them yourself!

Then you will sit down to enjoy the dumplings with the other guests and a special dessert. As a perfect ending to the whole experience, she will serve some Chinese green tea.  

Come by yourself and meet new friends or invite several of your friends to share this experience together. 

Detailed ingredients are listed below. Please feel free to let her know if you have any dietary restrictions and vegetarian/vegan options are available upon request.
