I booked a Dumpling Masterclass to celebrate mine and my boyfriend’s third anniversary, and we were both absolutely blown away by the experience! It was educational, engaging, and delicious. Not only did we get to learn a bit about transnational Chinese migration and Chinatowns all over the world, but Judy wove in a bit of her family history and stories about local shops/stores which made the experience so much more personal and special. It was really nice to walk around Chinatown and learn about the clan associations and meeting different shop owners and chefs. We were greeted so warmly (and once even with a free sample!). It was clear Judy is very well-known and loved in the neighbourhood. The venue was warm, well-lit, clean, and super nice aesthetically. The ingredients were very fresh, and Judy is an awesome teacher. She gave us clear directions and made great conversation, but also gave my boyfriend and I space/time to ourselves to fold our dumplings and laugh together, which we really appreciated. I’m sure it goes without saying, but the dumplings (and all the dipping sauces) were fantastic. Judy has a warm, outgoing personality and a great sense of humour. She went above and beyond, making it a super special night that we’ll never forget!
I booked Judy for a walking tour of Chinatown for a group of grade 9 and 11 students. What a memorable experience! Judy knows Chinatown like the back of her hand and regaled us with history, insider info and access to many fascinating buildings that would otherwise be out of reach. She is personable, energetic and clearly very passionate, which makes her tours engaging for people of all ages. I am born and raised in east van and left the tour with so much knowledge! The afternoon was inspiring and I will make this an annual field trip for my grande 9 social studies students.
