Dim Sum and then Some

April 21, 2010

My good friend and fellow foodie blogger Kristi, signed us up for cooking classes at Hipcooks, here in West LA. We chose Dim Sum from their large variety of classes available because it sounded like the most challenging since we were both clueless on where to  start with all these flavors! Since then, we’d anxiously been looking forward to stuffing our faces with wontons, dumplings, pork puff pastries and more!

We had a TON of fun learning to make Chinese food with our teacher Jessie and were both surprised with just how easy she made it all seem! I cant wait to try making these in my own kitchen, and then sharing them with you.  Here’s a look at what went on in the Hipcooks kitchen…

The menu:

  • Steamed shrimp wontons

  • Chicken cabbage dumplings

  • Chinese-style green beans

  • Seared sesame beef in rice paper

  • Lotus Flower Pork Puff Pastry

  • Sweet Wontons with orange, walnuts and dates

We also enjoyed 4 types of Chinese tea, seared scallop lo mein and even scallion pancakes! Stay tuned for video of me attempting my very first pan flip while making those really delicious scallion pancakes.

If you’re looking to hone in on your Chinese culinary skills, check out Hipcooks. Can’t wait for my next class!
