Course Cookery: Chinese Dim Sum Day NEW

‘Dim sum’ means snacks in Chinese. These tasty little treats from the Canton region were originally served in tea houses, at any time of day, and there are over 100 varieties. During this friendly and hands-on day your Chinese tutor will teach you how to cook delicious authentic dim sum including grilled dumplings, Hongshao mini ribs and crispy vegetable spring rolls.

Required Skills No previous knowledge required, suitable for all levels from beginners to more experienced cooks.
Teaching Method You will receive an introductory talk and explanation to give you some background to the cuisine, followed by step-by-step demonstration of the dishes, then you will prepare the dishes yourself with one-to-one help from your tutor as required. Recipe hand-outs will be provided.
Outcomes You will have learned to cook a variety of Chinese dim sum using authentic ingredients and methods, and taken those dishes home to enjoy with your friends and family.
Materials required An ingredients list will be sent out before the day – ingredients are likely to cost in the region of £30. Basic equipment is provided in the school kitchens but in addition you will need to bring a frying pan with a lid and a pair of chopsticks, as well as a tea towel, washing up liquid, dish cloths and containers to transport your food home in. Please bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee are provided free of charge but in order to avoid waste we are asking learners to bring their own re-usable coffee cups.
Homework required You will need to shop for ingredients in advance. However, should the course not run due to circumstances beyond our control, we will not be able to take responsibility for the cost of those ingredients.
Assessment At the start of the course you will be given your own individual learning plan. Your tutor will record your entry level and together you will track your progress and achievements. At the end of the day you will photograph your dishes to record your progress.
Progression to We will support learners to make informed choices about their next steps by providing appropriate individual and/or group information, advice, and/or guidance tailored to need and desired outcomes. Further Chinese cookery classes are available at this centre, as well as Indian, Vietnamese and Italian cookery, baking and cake decorating classes. Visit for full details.
