We’re sorry, this experience is not able to go ahead right now.
Due to the current lockdown measures, this experience is unable to take place between Thursday 4 November and Tuesday 2 December.
Every booking - regardless of when this takes place, will play a part in helping our local businesses to survive this challenging time and help them bounce back when we are able to visit them in person again.
Book something to look forward to or gift to someone special for when lockdown is over, or to celebrate a brand new year!
Discover a variety of dumplings that you can whip up at home for dinners, lunches or parties. Steamed or fried, meat or veggie, explore just how versatile dim sum can be, recreating some of your favourite dishes and eating everything you make.
You’ll discover how to make bao dough from scratch, creating a bao bun filling too. In total you’ll make 3 - 4 dim sum dishes using fresh, seasonal produce, that could include:
Gua Bao (Taiwanese pork buns) Siu mai dumplings Steamed wontons in chilli broth Spring onion, chive and mushroom bao
For the majority of this experience your chef host will demo the cooking, while you’re invited to bring your own wine or beer to enjoy as you see the flavours come together and then devour every dish together at the end.
You’ll go away with the recipes for everything made on the night so you can recreate them yourself at home.
There are no upcoming dates for this experience.
Existing dates have all sold out, but you can book now and schedule later when new dates are released.

Monica is the founder of Cooking It. She was born in Barcelona but has called Bristol home for almost 30 years. Monica grew up around food and could regularly be found in the kitchen of her grandparents’ restaurant, soaking up all the flavours and recipes - so much so she still loves making the tapas recipes she learnt as a child. She returns to Barcelona often to carry on discovering new recipes in her family’s restaurants and patisseries. When Monica isn’t sharing her cooking know-how, you’ll find her enjoying wine with friends and feeding people - often her four daughters and their friends.
