The Brighton & Hove Food Partnership's Community Kitchen is a cookery school where everyone can cook, learn new skills and enjoy food with others. We want everyone to experience the benefits of cooking and eating together. By paying for a cookery class, you help other people to attend cookery activities, regardless of finance, confidence or ability, and to make lasting changes to their lives.
Small-plate cooking the Chinese way!
Chinese cuisine has long embraced what many in the UK are only just discovering today – that you get more bang for your buck with bite-sized dishes. In this hands-on course, you will be taken on a journey of discovery to learn about the different styles of dim sum and the specialist ingredients needed for them, before preparing and cooking your own using a traditional steamer basket over a wok.
You will create siu mai, a type of open wonton, and learn three types of folds for dumplings with different flavourings and fillings - at this special Dim Sum lesson for Veganuary, all fillings will be vegan.
What previous participants said: “Amazing class, thank you so much! Liked the interactive experience, relaxing environment and teacher.” “Will definitely try this again at home.” “Really enjoyed the whole evening; learning all the folding techniques and watching the chef.”
