The Art of The Dumpling with Fresh Zen

Presented by The Trustees

Learn the art of the dumpling. In this fun, hands-on class, Ruby Chan of Fresh Zen Foods will show you how to create a variety of dumpling recipes that were in her family for generations. Ruby will walk you through the steps for preparing homemade dough and share secrets for shaping and filling dumplings. You'll enjoy working alongside classmates as you practice steaming, boiling and pan searing dumplings to perfection. Plus, you'll learn techniques for making fresh dipping sauce from scratch.

While you’re learning to make homemade dumplings, the Boston Public Market’s local wine expert will pour tastes of three different wines from Massachusetts wineries.

Menu:

  • Chicken and scallion dumplings from Chestnut Farms
  • Vegetarian Dumplings with seasonal veggies from Stillman's Farm
  • Pork and shiitake dumplings from Chestnut Farms and Siena Farms
  • Chile and herb dipping sauce

Our hands-on cooking classes are structured as a group learning experience; you’ll work with other students to create a seasonal meal led by our professional chef instructors. We focus on learning new cooking styles and techniques to increase your confidence and enjoyment in your own kitchen. Here are a few things to know before booking a class with us:

  • Each class is centered on the local, seasonal farmers and artisans of the Boston Public Market, so menus may change slightly based on what’s available the day of the event.
  • During each class, you’ll learn 2 or 3 recipes, you’ll work with between 2 and 4 other students to create each one, and you’ll enjoy a plentiful taste of each.
  • Classes are usually between 2 and 2.5 hours long, unless otherwise noted.
  • Please be prepared to be on your feet, standing at a table, and cooking for the duration of class.
  • We recommend comfortable, non-slip, and closed-toe shoes.

About Ruby Chan and Fresh Zen Foods

Ruby grew up in a family where food was everything. Her father was the consummate Asian restaurant connoisseur & restaurant owner and her mom was a sous-chef. In 1996 a passion for cooking and teaching brought Ruby a change of careers, and the start of FreshZen, a company devoted to creating all-natural, small-batch artisan sauces, and debuted the brand’s signature Ginger Scallion Sauce, based on a family recipe. With no preservatives and comprised of four ingredients – fresh ginger and scallions, along with kosher salt and canola oil – the sauce becomes the perfect accompaniment to chicken, beef, turkey, and fish, and enables busy people to whip up great-tasting Modern Asian meals with minimal preparation time. Look for it in the refrigerated section of local retailers, including Red's Best at Boston Public Market, Pemberton Farms in Cambridge, Volante Farms, Stacy’s Juicebar, Brookline Grown, Allandale Farm, Broadway Market.
