Maybe it's because Chino's bite-size, savory broth-filled soup dumplings have been haunting our dreams lately (in a delicious way), but we especially can't stop looking at the workshop called "Dumplings with Brandon Jew." He had us at "cooking secrets" and "techniques of dumpling creation." That's at 2:30pm in the Workshop Tent. Education never tasted so good.
