In this fun, hands on cooking class, chef Shailini Sisodia will teach attendees how to create the popular Nepali dumplings, known as "Momos". Students will learn how to make two momo fillings from scratch, sourcing ingredients from the Boston Public Market farmers and vendors. Shailini will then share tips for filling and shaping momos the traditional way, using both store bought and home made wrappers. The momos, steamed to perfection, are then eaten with a generous dollop of "Golbeda ko achaar" ( tomato pickle) on top. Enjoy working alongside classmates to perfect your momo making skills, plus learn techniques for making the tomato pickle from scratch!

While you’re learning to make homemade dumplings, the Boston Public Market’s local wine expert will pour tastes of three different wines from Massachusetts wineries. This is a wine tasting so each pour is about 1/3 of a glass.

Menu:

  • Chestnut Farms turkey and scallion dumplings with Nepali spices and herbs
  • Vegetarian Dumplings with Seasonal Veggies from Stillman's Farm
  • Handmade Tomato Achaar sauce

Dates:

  • Sunday, September 8 from 1:00-3:00 pm
  • Saturday September 28 from 1:00-3:00 pm

Tickets: $60 for Trustees member and $75 for Non-Trustees Members. Members must bring their current member card and number. Join The Trustees and save! Members save between 20-40% off all classes in The KITCHEN.

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. 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:

  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.
  • During each class, you’ll learn 2 or 3 recipes, you’ll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and you’ll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.
  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.

About Shailini Sisodia

Shailini Sisodia was born in Kathmandu, Nepal, and with her father being a well-known UN diplomat, the family lived all over the world. Massachusetts, however, has now been her home for the past few decades. A life long educator, Shailini taught at both Boston University and Northeastern University earlier in her career, and while she enjoyed that a great deal, she is currently living her true passion by teaching people how to cook food that is both delicious and nutritious. Toward that end, she teaches many different types of cuisines in her Boston area cooking classes, and most recently taught at the well known Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Kitchen. Shailini also does a great deal of volunteer work, mostly food related.
