Great course

I really liked Meilan Kao's teaching and the explanations are very detailed. The supplementary material is very enlightening. However, I missed the Xiao Long Bao recipe - I find this dumpling quite challenging, I've made it a few times but haven't managed to get it completely right yet. It would be great if there was part 2 of the Dim Sum course ;D

Delicious Intro to Dim Sum

Excellent intro to Dim Sum, explaining the history and techniques. I wish the course included a recipe for xiao long bao (soup dumplings) even though these are not traditional dim sum. Some of the recipes were frustrating due to mistranslation to English. Overall a very good course for practicing techniques, and the recipes were delicious. Chef Meilan Kao is a great teacher!
