Learn the art of the handmade dumpling at Mei Mei, two-time winner of Boston’s Best Dumplings from Boston Magazine. You’ll learn all you need to make delicious dumplings from scratch in a hands-on class led by our staFF.

This class covers everything you need to make dumplings at home, from hand-folding dumplings to learning a perfect pan-searing technique to creating your own dumpling sauce. You’ll get to fold all our favorite shapes: triangles, pleats, even roses! Then eat your creations while you sip on house-made beverages, or glass of wine or craft beer at the cash bar. Take home a recipe card and all the tips and tricks you need to host your very own home dumpling party!

Our Classes Include:

  • 2 hours of class time

  • Chef-led dumpling folding instruction (two fillings, four different ways to folds)

  • Signature Mei Mei snacks

  • Lots of dumplings to eat and take home!

  • Dumpling instructions & recipe card


Snacks: Participants get to try our Sweet Corn Fritters with maple soy aioli and Scallion Pancake wedges with cheddar cheese and house made pesto before the dumpling instruction begins. 

Dumplings: You will learn to make traditional Chinese pork and cabbage dumplings, and our signature Pierogi dumplings with creamy potatoes, cheddar and local veggies. 

$88 per person
