Eleanor Young’s lesson on dumpling making in ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ bears more weight than we think—and we believe you deserve to experience it yourself.
In the hit romantic comedy ‘Crazy Rich Asians’, Constance Wu’s Rachel Chu sits down with the Youngs to try her hand on dumpling making—a popular type of dim sum. This scene was iconic for having two very different worlds meet at a dining table. It unites the family and passes on a tradition that a lot of modern-day families tend to neglect. In the scene, Eleanor shares her two-cents on how the family should always come first. We couldn’t agree more, Eleanor. So to reintroduce the longstanding tradition of dim sum making, Canton Road stages a dim sum making class open for everyone to enjoy.
Learn directly from Chinese chefs as they expertly share the core techniques and trade secrets to this culinary signature. The two-hour classes will happen on February 2, 7, 9, 14, and 16 from 10:00 am to 12nn. For PhP 2,988 (nett for adults ages 18 years old and above) and PhP 1,888 (net for kids, ages 8 to 17 years old), everyone will get to relive that iconic moment from the film whilst opening the eyes of the younger generation to the art of dim sum making. The class includes a dim sum feast at one of the restaurant’s private dining rooms.
The Canton Road is located at Shangri-La at the Fort Manila.
