About the class

Potstickers, also known as “jiao zi”, is a popular dish in northern China where flour is the main ingredient of their daily meal. The most traditional potsticker fillings are ground pork and cabbage, but they can be made from whatever is in season. From kneading the dough to cooking the potstickers, it is a satisfying and fun handmade dish that can be made quickly. Homemade potstickers are often considered a special appetizer treat or can even be served as a main meal ~ Perfect for a Lunar New Year celebration! 

In this workshop, Gigi will show you how easy it is to make your homemade potstickers with simple ingredients. You will be making two types of potstickers, one with chicken and cabbage, and one vegan recipe with tofu and mushrooms. Gigi will show you two different ways to cook the potstickers and guide you with mixing several dipping sauce variations.

When you register for a class, you’ll be offered three price tiers. The middle tier comes closest to what our registration fees used to be, and covers about 50% of the full cost of your participation in the class – with the other 50% covered by community donations. The first tier creates accessibility for people with limited income, while the third tier covers the full cost of participation – so that we can use community donations to support other people’s registration costs. When you choose to register at the third tier, you directly help support the Center’s efforts to remove financial barriers for others.
