Overview
No trip to China would be complete without feasting on dumplings—but if you don’t speak Chinese, it’s hard to know where to find the best, or even what they’re called. Discover some of China’s favorite dumplings, including Shanghai’s signature xiaolongbao, from your foodie guide—and learn to cook Cantonese shrimp dumplings from a chef. Tour is limited to 10 people for a more intimate feel.
Highlights
  • Feast on up to eight different types of dumplings, including xiaolongbao
  • Learn how to make Cantonese dim sum dumplings from a professional chef
  • Discover the French Concession on a culinary walking tour
  • Tour and class are limited to 10 people for a more intimate atmosphere
What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group in central Shanghai and stroll the former French Concession, a charming colonial-era area. Taste up a storm as you discover the city’s myriad dumpling styles. Savor up to eight samples, including jiaozi (favored in northern China), hun tun (wontons), guotie (pan-fried dumplings), and, of course, Shanghai’s favorite xiaolongbao (soup-filled dumplings). After learning about the meaning of food in Shanghai, it’s time for a cooking class. A professional chef will show you how to make har gow, a Cantonese dim sum favorite with delicate wrappers stuffed with juicy shrimp. Then make your own and eat your fill before you say farewell. Your guide can direct you to the subway or help you find a taxi.

I had the best time! Rebecca has us in and out of small, local dumpling shops and I couldn’t have enjoyed it more. Very much worth the money and I’d do it again.

To say we had a great time, would be an understatement. We ate so many dumplings and were so full by the end. Come with an empty stomach and an open mind (mainly because you will be learning about the origins of what you are eating). The cooking class was a welcome reprieve to
