Members Cooking Course: Theory and Practice of Chinese Dumplings

Saturday, October 6, 2012

With the addition of a new state-of-the-art kitchen, the Clark is now able to offer members hands-on cooking courses. In this class, members will learn about the historical and cultural background of Chinese dumplings while developing practical skills in preparing authentic Chinese recipes. Locally available ingredients will be used (to the extent possible). This will be a hands-on experience; students are asked to bring an apron, a cutting board, a knife, a kitchen towel, and a small dish cloth. The course will last three hours and will require a lot of standing, so comfortable shoes are suggested (some stools will be available as needed). The instructor for this class is Jerling Kubler, who has taught Chinese language and culture at various institutions overseas and in the U.S., including at Williams College. $45 per person for each class. Space is limited to 12 people for each class; reservations are required.
