    Visit the local wet market in the morning to experience the local Shanghainese life. And go to the cooking workshop, where you will learn how to make Chinese Dim-sum and dishes in a 2hours course. Then you’ll enjoy the food you made as lunch. Afterwards, enjoy a walking tour in the Former French Concession area, to learn more stories about Shanghai in the old days.

    Chinese name: 饺子 (jiǎo zi)

    Characteristics: It tastes fresh and delicious in various shapes.

    In China, especially in northern China, making and eating dumplings is an important activity for most families on New Year's Eve in Spring Festival. The wrapper is usually made from flour and water, but the fillings vary a lot, ranging from all sorts of meat and vegetables to seafood, mushrooms and even fruit. They are meniscus, angular or ingot shaped traditionally, but nowadays they are made into flowers, birds, fish and insects, more like arts and crafts than food. It is also a tradition in northern China to eat dumplings on the day of Winter Solstice.
