Making Dumplings- Jiaozi (饺子) with MCO Interns

Many of the interns that come to China always ask how to make simple Chinese dishes that they can easily make at home. This Saturday Miranda and I decided to teach the participants in our winter intake how to make Chinese dumplings.

Making Chinese dumplings is extremely easy, but very time consuming because the dough takes time to kneed. After the dough has risen you need to cut out little circle pieces to put the filling inside of. The dumplings we made this time had part spinach and pork inside of them. They actually quite taste when the final product is finished.

After the dumplings were complete, we decided to boil them for a few minutes and then pan fried them. Dumplings taste really good when they are actually slightly fried. When you eat them we put a little bit of dumpling vinegar and spicy peppers.

It was a lot of work but a great learning experience for our China interns. I hope our interns in China return home and teach their friends/family how to make jiaozi!

Panjiayuan (潘家园) Glasses Market with MCO Interns

One of our interns wanted to go to the glasses market to check out all of the latest eye-wear. Panjiayuan is famous for having all of the lastest shades, eyeglasses, and contacts from around the world. Lots of famous eye-wear from South Korea, Hong Kong, USA, Italy, etc.

I ended up buying a pair of Ray Ban’s and some super thin lenses inside to go with my super high prescription. I think the total price for my glasses was CNY500 (US$80). It was so cheap.

I recommend any of interns who wear glasses to check out this place. It’s pretty cool!
