About the workshop

No trip to Shanghai is ever complete without some tasty Soup Dumplings (小笼包, pinyin: xiao long bao) in your belly. Take a stroll through Shanghai's gorgeous French Concession, then step into our professional culinary studio for a lesson in making traditional xiaolongbaos! Learn the skills involved in recreating this dish from scratch with our experienced and bilingual chef.

Xiao Long Baos are a steamed bun dish, filled with savory and juicy soup - hence the name English name Soup Dumplings. The origin of this dish is Jiangnan, a region of China, but Shanghainese Xiao Long Bao originated in Nanxiang, a suburb of Shanghai in Jiading District. The dish is traditionally prepared in xiao long; small bamboo baskets for steaming, and filled with juicy pork - although a popular and version of it today is a mixture of steamed pork and minced crab meat with roe.
