      The Experience

      Come pinch, roll, and stuff with the pros during a dumpling making class held in the bustling first-floor food hall and market at China Live, the sprawling Chinese food emporium created by lauded San Francisco chef George Chen. In this intimate class led by a professional Dim Sum chef, you’ll perfect centuries-old techniques and experiment with savory flavor combinations to create tender, plump, and simply irresistible dim sum dumplings. A celebratory champagne toast and dinner, featuring your dim sum creations, will follow the class. Perfect for foodies who want to explore a cuisine that has had a profound impact on the San Francisco culinary scene, this exclusive IfOnly experience benefits the Chinatown Community Development Center. Made up of neighborhood advocates, organizers, and planners, the CCDC aims to improve the quality of life of San Francisco residents.
