At this hands on workshop you'll learn how to make delicious cocktails and dumplings!

Have our chefs teach you our perfected recipe of two styles of dumplings, with just the right amount of herbs and spices. We'll then steam them for you in our kitchen, and you'll enjoy them at the end of the class. While we do that, you will learn about some original Asian style cocktails - you'll enjoy getting hands on as you make (and enjoy) two different cocktails. Ideal skills for your next dinner party!

We can hold up to 50 people for the class in a private space onsite, perfect for any event. Alternatively, if you have tables and gas burners, we can come to you. Using it as a team building exercise? Have fun judging the perfect dumpling, from flavour to presentation. Just ask for more details.

This class takes two to three hours and includes a hearty meal of dumplings (around 15 per person). Vegan and gluten-free options are available too.

We provide everything, so you just need to book, show up and enjoy. We look forward to welcoming your group!

Great atmosphere, lovely cocktails and helpful teachers. We made so many tasty dumplings and had leftovers for days!

Lissa Mathew  •  Jan 2021

Venue was easy to locate - short walking distance from the station. Instructor was friendly and explained everything slowly and clearly. We learnt the tools involved in making cocktails, made two house cocktails and learnt 3 types of dumpling folds/made lots of dumplings! (Vegetable/Pork). Tips on both cocktail making and dumpling folding/making on was also provided which was very helpful.

All in all a good experience, suits all kinds of groups - date night, friends, work covers all the bases.

Rebecca McIntosh  •  Dec 2020

The teacher was wonderful.
The cocktails we made were unique and delicious.
It was a lot of fun making the dumplings and they steam, pan fry and deep fry them so you can try them the three different ways at the end.
We made so many we came home with dumplings for the next day.
Highly recommend great experience!

Samudit Rupasinghe  •  Dec 2020

Teacher brought great energy, was organise and had everything ready to go. Process was well explained and easy to follow. Good ingredients and outcome tasted great only downside was that we now had ~60 dumplings between 2 people.

Overall really good experience!

Amanda Schafer  •  Dec 2020

Great value for money, easy to follow along and cool location with fun staff. Cocktail class combined with dumpling making was entertaining but not too difficult. Great date night or girls night out. Plenty of dumplings to take home too! The only small idea we would have loved to take a recipe card home for the cocktails and/or dumplings.

Cooking workshop review by Julie Elefante

Jessica Takchi  •  Dec 2020

This class was great! Not only was it very organised but the staff were all lovely and fun. The set up for the dumplings made the process very efficient. Having many staff/chefs come up to us and show us different ways to fold them made the experience more enjoyable. Our teacher for the cocktails was great, relaxed and outgoing. Although it was a bit pricey, everything we received made it worth it. A very fun experience!

Salve Pedrosa  •  Nov 2020

Small groups made it easier to make the dumplings and cocktails.

Thank you!

Cooking workshop review by Emma Story

Tanya Leigh  •  Nov 2020

The staff were great and we had a really fun time.
They probably need to find a better way to label the dumplings and package half of them, too many to eat. It would have been nice if a reasonable serve was presented for us, rather than pile them high.
But I do recommend this experience.

Liz Barrett  •  Nov 2020

Chelcie Pike  •  Oct 2020

We loved the venue, great spot in Kings Cross. Super convenient location and the staff were so lovely and accommodating. The class itself was so fun. The cocktail making was easy to follow and the teacher was lovely. The dumpling making was super fun too. We really enjoyed being hands on. The chef was such a lovely man who really took the time to show you how to make them properly and even when they turned out terrible he would have a laugh and show you again. We stayed for hours after the class and enjoyed the atmosphere and the dumplings we made. They were delicious! We chatted for hours with the friends we made from the class. Honestly we would do this class again in a heartbeat. Such a fun way to meet people and just have a laugh. Thanks again

Cocktail making and dumpling perfect event. Teachers and staff were lovely, helpful and entertaining.
