Your class host will pick you up from the meeting point at 2:00pm, and then start a interesting wet market visit near by where you will learn how to pick out the best vegetables and bargain for the best prices. After wet market visit, we will teach you about traditional Shanghainese and Cantonese dim sum, such as the most famous shanghainese dim sum ''xiaolongbao'' (soup dumpling), wontons and those wonderful shrimp dumplings with the translucent skin. Fried treats include mini spring rolls and fired dumplings. Discover more dishes on our website. Please kindly note: Dimsum is challenging, it's a little bit difficult to make it perfect in your first time. As long as you know how to make it, anything else you need is to practice. Practice makes perfect. The more you practice, the better it will be.
