      Holiday/2019 Chinese New Year Celebration - Dumpling+Bubble Tea Making

      Fall & Holiday Season & 2019 Chinese New Year Celebration - Dumpling and Bubble Tea Making in Philly Chinatown Sponsored by Asian Arts Initiative's Shared Spaces 共享空间 Program We cordially invite you, your families, and your friends to attend a fun DIY Dumpling + Bubble Tea party to celebrate Fall and a kickoff the holiday season, including Chinese New Year while enjoying bubble tea, everyone will learn a new cooking skill – making dumplings + Bubble Tea! 2019 Chinese New Year will be on February 5, 2019! In the dumpling making party, you will enjoy a hands-on adventure - make-your-own dumplings. You'll be guided, taught by Yin, a dumping making expert who will teach you how to fill and shape your own pot stickers and more in an authentic way. At the event, we may use either pre-made wrappers or make wrappers ourselves. We will also prepare at least two types of dumpling fillings (meat, e.g. kale and ground pork, and vegetables): each person will make at least five of each dumpling type. We can either cook one recipe at a time and pause to eat between batches, or cook them all and eat at the end. Either way, dinner will be delicious!  Dumplings are the singular best food to make for (and with) a crowd: They’re easy, fun, beginner-friendly, and cook super quickly. The more hands you we on deck, the quicker the dumplings come together and the faster we can get to eating.  Highlight: Make your own Bubble tea!

Yin was also interviewed by “What’s Cooking” on 1060 by Hadas Kuznits, of the Philadelphia (CBS) KYW radio station about Chinese New Year. In early 2017, she was invited by the show, Travel & Adventure, to host a dumpling making show in the PA Convention Center. Photo Taken During One of Five-Spice Tours of Philly Chinatown/Dim Sum Tasting "Yin did such a wonderful job during our Chinese New Year celebration and was so engaging. After the fun and exciting dumpling demo for the Chinese New Year, we all thought Yin would be great person to have back for this event." - From Reading Terminal Market. Photo Taken During Dumpling Making Show for the Chinese New Year Celebration at Reading Terminal Market on Feb 4th, 2017 In summer, 2017, Yin was invited by the Reading Terminal Market to participate in an important community project - The Breaking Bred, Breaking Barriers dinner project. Yin represented the Chinese community to present Chinese iconic food to other ethnical groups. More specifically, she performed a dumpling making demonstration and brought the most popular street food in China, the Chinese Crepe, to the Philly market for the first time ever. Photo with our guests during the dumpling making demonstration at City Kitchen, Reading Terminal Market on June 5th, 2017 Yin was doing the demo for Chinese Crepe, the most popular street food in China on September 13, 2017 at City Kitchen, Reading Terminal Market The Breaking Bread, Breaking Barriers dinner project, funded by Knight Foundation, brings together individuals from different cultures to sample each other’s cuisines and learn more about each other, to see what they might have in common. The project parties include the Reading Terminal Market, HIAS-PA, Philadelphia’s Human Relations Commission and the UPENN Project for Civic Engagement. On June 5th, Reading Terminal invited three communities – the Chinese, the Mexican, and the Mummers, to get to know one another better through this forum, by learning about each other’s culture through food. We were honored to be invited to represent the Chinese community. Each community, through a guest chef, provided an interactive cooking demonstration of one to two dishes that can be used to highlight one’s culture, history, and communal stories. They then sat down to have dinner to engage in a dialogue facilitated by the Human Relations Commission. The idea is that the participants walk away from the session with a foundational understanding of one another’s culture and history. Photo with Mayor Jim Kearny, General Manager from Reading Terminal Market, Anuj Gupton, and community leaders from the event on June 5th, 2017 On September 14, 2017, Yin assisted Master Chef Joseph Poon from Chef Joseph Poon Creations and Events during 2nd Annual PAAFF (Philadelphia Asian Arts Film Festival) Asian Chef Experience highlighting the top Asian culinary talents in Philadelphia. This was a special Chef tasting event with 14 of Philadelphia's most prominent Asian American & Pacific Islander Chefs preparing tasting sized portions of their best dishes. This event serves as an important fundraising tool for 2017 Philadelphia Asian Arts Film Festival while also highlighting the incredible talent and diversity of cuisine within the local community of culinary artists. Yin founded Five-Spice Philly and Dumpling Academy. Five-Spice Philly is an organization dedicated to the service of showcasing Philadelphia’s thriving Asian food scene. It seeks to bring Philadelphia residents and all incoming visitors the latest in Philadelphia’s cuisine and entertainment.
