Event description


Calling All Singles - Dumpling Making, Mix and Mingle Party in NYC

“At the beginning, when I was very new to dating, I did use, exchanged emails with quite a few different guys and went on some dates with a few of them. I eventually discontinued my use of match because I felt that it could take a long time to make a good connection that way. Two of the guys that I ended up being interested in were people I had met in person rather than through a dating site. I think that your service is very promising since it has live events that help people make a connection.”

- Stacy, one of our members

To date, we have received many emails like Stacy’s - many people prefer event-based dating over online dating. And we do that too. We all agree that there is a better chance to find someone special and get to know them when you actually meet the person and do activities together, e.g. cook a meal together.

Yin Meets Yang cordially invites you to attend a DIY Dumpling Afternoon/Evening with other attractive, highly accomplished professional singles. While having fun meeting interesting people, you will acquire a new cooking skill – learn to make your own dumplings from Yin Meets Yang Founder Alice, who is a Wharton graduate and also the most eligible single.

Alice’s story - Growing up, my grandmother’s visits to our home meant one thing: All of the dumplings. She would drop by on a Sunday morning, bags in with ground pork, tofu, vegetables, and packages of dumpling wrappers. My family would devote the entire afternoon to filling and pleating our way through hundreds of dumplings, as my mother would boil and pan-fry batches for us to eat as we worked. We’d freeze what we couldn’t eat, to be pulled out on busy weeknights when none of us felt like cooking. That experience has shaped who I am today. Many years have passed, I still love making dumplings and experimenting on different fillings. For more of Alice’s stories, please visit under Feature Members.

In this Singles, Mix and Mingle Party, you will enjoy a hands-on adventure - make-your-own dumplings. You'll be guided, taught by Alice who is a dumping making expert and learn how to fill and shape your own pot stickers, wontons, and more in an authentic way.

We will provide wrappers, fillings and dumping sauces in advance. We will also prepare at least two types of recipes (meat, e.g. kale and ground pork, and vegetables): each person will make at least five of each dumpling. Participants will be placed to teams and we will compete among the teams to see which team will produce the best looking dumplings! We will either cook one recipe at a time and pause to eat between batches, or we’d rather cook them all at the end. Either way, dinner will be delicious!

Dumplings are the singular best food to make for (and with) a crowd: They’re easy, fun, beginner, and cook up super quickly. The more hands you we on deck, the quicker the dumplings come together and the faster we can get eating.

So we will need more of You! Come to Join us for a Fun Dumping Afternoon/Evening!

It was fabulous to hear people's experiences with making dumplings, how they didn't think they could do it and how they practiced and persisted. As someone at our past dumping making party said, "Dumplings are instant smiles."

Bonus – you will also learn how to use chopsticks in a correct way. A small game will be held to find out who the best chopstick user is. Note: Native Chinese are not eligible for the game.

Important – Please note that the party will take place in a private personal residence. Instead of being in a boring commercial kitchen, you will be working in a real Chinese family’s kitchen and learn how to make real dumplings in a more fun and casual way.
