Had you asked me before I took chef Jannie Huang‘s class if I ever thought I’d be able to make a dumpling, the answer would have been a firm no. Yet, in just over 90 minutes, I learned to make both boiled and fried dumplings.

But Huang, who learned how to make dumplings from her parents as a tween, was a great teacher. She kept up a steady stream of lively commentary and assured all 70 or so of us that we’d be great.

When steps were a little tricky, like folding the dumplings, Huang made sure to repeat them plenty of times.
