“I had a fantastic afternoon. The dumplings were delicious, the surroundings delightful and the company warm and stimulating.”
“On a cold winter’s evening, dumplings shared with friends, handmade by ourselves, made a delicious meal which we will remember for a long time.”
“You were very calm and patient with everyone, explaining ingredients and procedure so well. Every little dumpling, no matter what the shape was delicious. Practice makes perfect. “
Saturday, 29/6/2013: an enjoyable day was had by the knife-wielding, apron-clad women who chopped, pleated, filled and ate many dumplings. Doreen, Anne, Liz, Sue, Linda, Treena, Jacinta, Margot, Megan, and Bronwen (my unofficial helper) all became expert dumpling makers. Best apron award goes to Doreen.
Thanks to Walter and Dorota for generously hosting my charity dumpling class at their sumptuous Trupp Cooking School, a warm and inviting place, to my pal extraordinaire Deb who helped before, during and after the class with editing my notes, shopping, chopping, driving and washing (lots of it) and to my husband Peter for taking many great photos.
This class was made possible by S.Edleston and friends, who organised the donation to the annual Ron Evans Golf Day and Doreen’s partner who was the successful bidder at the Silent Auction. Funds raised by this class were donated to Monash Institute of Medical Research.
