As the Spring Festival is coming soon next month, Echo organized an activity for our foreign teachers who voluntarily joined in last Saturday at a local dumpling restaurant. The dumplings contain a sort of affection when everyone gathered together and every teacher had an incredibly great time.
There are a variety of fillings that can be stuffed into dumplings. The most common one is pork along with vegetables. For the vegetarians, it's common to add egg or tofu to an array of tasty, crunchy fillings such as carrot, chives or cabbage.
When our teachers arrived, the store owner had already prepared six different fillings, so they just needed to roll the dumpling wrappers. The professional Chinese instructor patiently showed them how to make a perfect circular wrapper and our teachers learned by following her. Then they added a portion of their preferred fillings into the center of a wrapper and pinch together at the top, crimping up the sides.
Although it was their first time making Chinese dumplings,everyone was doing perfectly and made their own unique ones.
Finally they boiled the dumplings and enjoyed their time tasting them.
We'd like to express our appreciation to all the teachers who joined our activity this time and welcome more teachers participate in our events in the near future.
