This is the real thing!

Lilian is a true virtuoso. Trained by the legendary Raffles Hotel in Singapore, Lilian’s knife skills and encyclopaedic knowledge of the cuisines of the Far East is wonderfully inspiring.

In this Master Class, Lilian will teach us how to make a variety of authentic dim sum, steamed and fried.

Dim sum literally means ‘touch the heart lightly’. It is believed that the Chefs of the Royal court many centuries ago, created little bite size delicacies in order to ‘touch the heart’ of the Chinese emperors.

Guest chef Lilian Hiw, who trained and worked at legendary Raffles Hotel in Singapore, makes the most delicious dim sum we have ever had. Lilian shares her skills in making dim sum, using ready-made dumpling wrappers, easy to follow methods, hands on practise and lots of interactive fun! You will learn the technique of making four classic dim sum using fresh ingredients readily available in the supermarkets. You will be able to easily replicate them at home This is the mouth watering menu for the class:

Chinese Pork and Cabbage Jiaozi
Little pockets bursting with juicy pork, nappa cabbage and spring onions. These dumplings are fried till crispy on the bottom but softly steamed on top, served with julienne of ginger and Chinkiang black vinegar

Steamed Pork & Prawn Siu Mai
An ‘open top’ Chinese dumpling packed full of minced pork and fresh prawns, steamed to juicy perfection, a true Dim Sum classic

Five Spice Wontons
Light and crispy pork and fresh coriander parcels, with a hint of five spice and Chinese rice wine. Irresistible with a sweet chilli dip

Sesame Prawn Toast
Sweet fresh prawns complimented with the crunchiness of
water chestnuts and nutty fragrance of sesame seeds on fluffy
white bread, crisp fried to golden perfection

When Lilian ran her last class here, the food was so sensational that both guests and our own team were utterly blissed out. Lillian’s pop ups in our Bistro sell out faster than you can say Dim Sum – book early to avoid disappointment.

We are found at the very end of Purbeck Road (off Hills Rd by the sixth form centre) where you turn left by Abbey college and then carry straight on for about 60m to the white awnings you will see ahead.

Please note that there is very limited parking on site. We recommend the multi storey at the Leisure Centre less than 10min walk away or the Babraham Park & Ride which stops on Hills Road, very close to Purbeck Rd.
