My sister and I love Dim Sum and have tried to cook it before and failed dismally so I treated my sister to this as a special birthday present and we both went. We had a fabulous afternoon - the kitchen was small but well organised and well prepared. Angela kept a pacey and interesting patter going throughout the afternoon and was always on hand if you got stuck!
We learnt a lot about the 5 key flavours which helped our overall approach to cooking and helped us understand where we were going wrong previously ! We made prawn wontons to go in a prepared chicken broth which we completed - then we ate ! Delicious ! Then we made pork and waterchestnut steamed dumplings and then ate them (my favourite !) then we made pot stickers which were quite tricky with a frying and then poaching technique but I would def make them again, as I would the other 2. It was a friendly atmosphere - you could have drinks throughout and were encouraged to taste and apply the knowledge. There was a good selection of ingredients you could buy and the best selection of yummy cakes to buy that I have seen in a long time ! The lemon drizzle was delicious but a little pricey for the size !
I would def recommend it and would def try another course even though I had to travel from Oxford.
It makes a great present and because of the atmosphere I wouldn't mind going on my own or with a friend.
