Kids Cooking Class – Shumai

November 14, 2021 / by Junko


Today we had a lesson with four cute girls! It seemed they enjoyed the pizza lesson they had at our kitchen before, and they were excited to come again!
We made 60 shumai dumplings (!) and Chinese egg soup today, and they did everything all on their own. We taught them how to wrap the shumai in an easy way and also how to steam them in a frying pan if they didn’t have a steamer at home.
We think they were very satisfied with the results since about 50 of the dumplings vanished into their stomachs in no time (and they also had a bowl of rice to go with their meal!)
It’s fun being able to watch them grow and to see how their kitchen skills are improving!

We hope to see them again!!


There are so many Japanese dishes and cultures that are not well known outside of Japan and I’m happy to introduce them to you! If you tested any of our recipes feel free to send us a photo and your comments and we will be happy to publish them, even if it wasn't a complete success! :)
