Know More about this tour

You will meet your English-speaking guide at an easy-to-find central location then take a short walk to our favorite Shanghai soup dumpling restaurant. This tour transforms a private area of the restaurant into a private cooking studio complete with all the ingredients and tools you need plus a personal photographer (no need to touch your own camera with messy hands!).

Hand-on instruction from both a local Shanghai soup dumpling chef and your Lost Plate guide will be available while you work on your dumpling technique and learn how locals judge their dumplings. You will have enough time and ingredients to make at least two full baskets of your own dumplings.

While your dumplings are being steamed, youll be served a selection of sweet & savory treats that are handmade on-site. You will get to eat all of your own soup dumplings, and have a friendly competition with your fellow chefs for the best preparation and finished product. Walk away with a strong appreciation for the work and effort that goes into making the most popular dumplings in the world. Plus a goody bag complete with a dumpling making kit and recipe!
