In Chinese homes, dumplings (or jiaozi in Mandarin) are a traditional food eaten on New Year’s Eve. I’ll show you how to make Jiaozi. This will be a cooking class that features each of us as a chef who will get to eat his or her own cooking—eight mouthwatering vegetarian Jiaozi. There will be no pressure for performance as we’ll enjoy the slow and meditative way of making this wonderful food.

I’m a certified nature and forest therapy guide with the Association of Nature and Forest Therapy Guides and Programs. I love guiding people for an immersive experience in the forest, and coming out feeling relaxed and revitalized. I also love teaching others how to make Chinese food, such as dumplings. I was born and raised in rural China. I spent a lot of time outdoors as a child, helping my grandmother gather firewood and following my grandfather around as he raised buffaloes. I came to the United States as a PhD candidate in 1990 and made Los Angeles my home after completing my studies.
