Learn the art of the dumpling. In this fun, hands-on class, Ruby Chan of Fresh Zen Foods will show you how to create a variety of dumpling recipes that were in her family for generations. Ruby will walk you through the steps for preparing homemade dough and share secrets for shaping and filling dumplings. You'll enjoy working alongside classmates as you practice steaming, boiling and pan searing dumplings to perfection. Plus, you'll learn techniques for making fresh dipping sauce from scratch.

We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:
Ruby grew up in a family where food was everything. Her father was the consummate Asian restaurant connoisseur & restaurant owner and her mom was a sous-chef. In 1996 a passion for cooking and teaching brought Ruby a change of careers, and the start of FreshZen, a company devoted to creating all-natural, small-batch artisan sauces, and debuted the brand’s signature Ginger Scallion Sauce, based on a family recipe. With no preservatives and comprised of four ingredients – fresh ginger and scallions, along with kosher salt and canola oil – the sauce becomes the perfect accompaniment to chicken, beef, turkey, and fish, and enables busy people to whip up great-tasting Modern Asian meals with minimal preparation time. Look for it in the refrigerated section of local retailers, including Red's Best at Boston Public Market, Pemberton Farms in Cambridge, Volante Farms, Stacy’s Juicebar, Brookline Grown, Allandale Farm, Broadway Market.
